" 'night, Mother," the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Marsha Norman, will have three performances on the University of Utah campus as part of the school's 1999 Women's Week activities.

Performances -- all free of charge -- are Friday at 1 and 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m., all in the Fine Arts Museum auditorium.The play, directed by Helen E. Richardson of the U. theatre department and performed by Robyn Bringhurst and Theresa A.

During the course of the play, both women confront fundamental choices of life and death.

The Friday afternoon performance will be followed by a panel discussion with experts on women's issues, including Brenda Voisard, coordinator of counseling at the U. of U. Women's Resource Center, and Eli Y. Adashi, professor of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the school's Health Science's Center.
