WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In the shadow of World War II, architect William Levitt envisioned a new American town in a Long Island potato field. After an extensive and spirited development effort, thousands of Levitt "Cape Cod" homes were built with scrap materials from the War. Each carefully modeled home was designed to serve the needs of the modern family, and soften the impact of the modern War. They were sold for $8,000 to battle-weary GIs with the hope of a new life -- and as a means of forgetting the recent past... It is nearly half a century later. The Maddigan family spans three generations of New York City firefighters. When Kevin, the grandson of a combat veteran, returns early from yet another college, he learns that his deeply troubled sister is about to be married. Inspired with a renewed hope of reconciliation and happiness, (and a final departure from a painful past) he attempts to reconcile the family with the abusive father who left them years before. Amidst the thin walls of their Levittown home, the members of this beleaguered family are forced to confront a concealed history, and the failures of the tidy truths they have desperately tried to embrace. No performance: Sunday, June 25 Additional performance: Monday, June 26 at 8pm
