Robert Falls directs the world premiere of Frank's Home, by Richard Nelson.
It is summer, 1923, and architect Frank Lloyd Wright has recently left Chicago for California, determined to embrace Hollywood's youthful zest and mend broken relationships with his adult children. He has recently completed his latest "wonder of the world" -- Tokyo's Imperial Hotel -- and is poised to settle down and embrace his new home. But his splintered family still holds deep-seeded resentments. Then news arrives of an earthquake in Japan that has leveled his prized hotel. Or has it? A stunning new play from one of America's best contemporary playwrights, Frank's Home is a lyrical, heartbreaking story about one of our greatest, if less than perfect, visionaries -- a man who created a new architectural vocabulary but couldn't create a home for himself and his family.
Presented in association with Chicago's Goodman Theater.
