“Hornschemeier eloquently conveys a story of family loss and paternal disconnect.” – Dark Horse Comics

Widower David and his young son Thomas each have their own methods for dealing with grief. For David, the abstractions of symbolic logic; for Thomas, his essential role as “The Groundskeeper,” a masked defender of the household. From the critically-acclaimed graphic novel and produced by Third Rail in a new, multimedia format, Mother, Come Home is the quietly stunning tale of a family struggling to adapt to their new reality.

This production is sponsored by a Creative Heights Grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.

Content Warning: This piece includes themes of depression, suicide and grief. If you know you’d like to speak to someone at Third Rail to find out more about the show before you book, you can call the Box Office at 503-235-1101 or email us at
