Dan Lauria stars in the Off Broadway premiere of William Mastrosimone's A Stone Carver. Conflicts surrounding eminent domain and urban redevelopment explode in this arresting family drama, directed by Tony Award winner Robert Kalfin.
When a town wants to build a new highway off- ramp and issues eminent domain orders to clear the needed land, one elderly stone carver refuses to leave the home he built with his own hands. His son, a rising politician, tries to convince him to move - and move on. A Stone Carver is a powerful drama about a conflict sparked by a son's commitment to progress, a father's respect for the past, and the shifting values between generations.
