The writer who brought us The Light in the Piazza, Reckless, and Prelude to a Kiss now investigates how history collides with the human heart in his funniest and most poignant work to date. The Riemans are your typical American family: they haven’t spoken to each other in decades. Severed by deeply buried secrets from the Holocaust, this endearing group of individuals are desperate to stay out of contact with each other. Their story takes you on a passage from today's world of Starbucks, celebrity and therapy to Freud's inner circle in Vienna and to Paris at the end of WWII. This is a classic inter-generational story that both moves and transports, sweeping through one family’s journey to reconcile their past.
Performance contains nudity, gunshots, loud sound effects, strobe lights, smoking, and the use of smoke effects.
