WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Honor! Madness! Blood! Obie Award winner Jo Bonney directs the world premiere of an edgy, intense, and darkly comic new play by John Pollono. Amy Brenneman (The Leftovers), Jamie Harris (AMC's Turn), and Josh Helman (Mad Max: Fury Road) head the cast of this highly dramatic and very funny play set in 1855 Boston, where the local citizenry mingle, love, and fight with regularity. When Nathaniel "Wings" Leeds is challenged to a duel by the most dangerous man in the city, he asks his estranged brother to be his second. Deep family tensions and old rivalries resurface as the brothers struggle to follow the hundreds-of-years-old "code of dueling."
