Election day, November 2, 2010. Uncle Benjamin’s dog has died and his nieces and nephew have gathered for dinner in Rhinebeck, New York, to surprise him with a new one. While the polls close, the Apple family discusses memory, manners, and politics. Richard Nelson (Conversations in Tusculum at The Public, James Joyce’s The Dead) returns to The Public with a timely new play that examines the state of the nation at this pivotal moment in our history.
The cast features Jon DeVries (National Tour August: Osage County), Tony Award winner Shuler Hensley (Oklahoma), Tony Award winner Maryann Plunkett (Me and My Girl), Laila Robins (Midsummer Night's DreamThe Merchant of Venice at The Public), Jay O. Sanders (Twelfth Night, Hamlet and more at The Public), and Tony Nominee J. Smith-Cameron (Our Country's Good and HBO's True Blood).
