Mother Hicks

Mother Hicks

Mother Hicks is earth, and fire, and water, and blood, and tears...


Recipient of AATE’s Distinguished Play Award, Mother Hicks is the inspiring folkloric story of three Depression-era outsiders: Girl, an orphan who is passed from home to home; Tuc, a young deaf man whose perceived weakness is really one of his great strengths; and Mother Hicks, a midwife whose unconventional methods have fearful townspeople believing her to be a witch. An evocative tale told through poetry and sign language, Mother Hicks illustrates our collective journey through life in search of belonging.
