Tony winner Mary Louise Parker won a Golden Globe and a legion of fans for her incredible portrayal of Nancy Botwin, a pot-dealing widow, on the hit Showtime series Weeds. But after eight seasons on television, Parker snuffed out her joint and returned to Broadway in the new Sharr White play The Snow Geese. While these two projects are seemingly worlds apart (a contemporary comedy about drugs and a World War I drama set in a hunting lodge), we’re here to argue that Weeds fans will love this play, because it’s actually very similar to the TV show they already adore.

Weeds - Nancy

In both 'Weeds' and 'The Snow Geese', Parker plays a recent widow whose seemingly wealthy husband left her penniless.


Weeds- Sons

Mary-Louise Parker is the mother of two wildly different sons who don’t always see eye to eye.


Weeds- Older Son

Her older son is handsome, charming and pretty clueless about the realities of life.


Weeds - Younger Son

Her younger son is smarter than his years and feels underappreciated by mom.


Weeds- Brothers

Her character has a brother-in-law who doesn’t really have a job and is very smitten with her.


Weeds- Sisters

Both feature an uptight sister who is judgmental and jealous of Mary-Louise’s character.


Weeds- Husband

And finally, 'Weeds' and 'The Snow Geese' include a sexy and heartwarming dream sequence with her late husband.
