As three generations of the Blake family assemble for Thanksgiving in Brigid (Sarah Steele) and Richard’s (Arian Moayed) ramshackle and sparsely furnished pre-war apartment, the audience is offered a seat at the table. As the play unfolds, so do the worries plaguing their lives. Despite their best intentions, their personal and political woes cannot be suppressed, and the precarious situation of their country becomes increasingly evident.
The play is guided through the personal and the political, through light and shade and everything in between, by director Joe Mantello, whose astounding directorial range – spanning from blockbuster, pop musical Wicked to a one-man adaptation of David Sedaris’s comic essay The Santaland Diaries, makes him the perfect candidate for this bitter-sweet exposé of the human condition.
