Shuler Hensley, Laila Robins, J. Smith-Cameron, et al. Set for Richard Nelson's That Hopey Changey Thing
The work is set on election day, November 2, 2010. Uncle Benjamin's dog has died and his nieces and nephew have gathered for dinner in Rhinebeck, New York, to surprise him with a new one. While the polls close, the Apple family discusses memory, manners, and politics.
The 2010-2011 Public LAB season will continue this spring with Urge for Going by Mona Mansour, directed by Hal Brooks (March 25-April 17) and Knickerbocker by Jonathan Marc Sherman, directed by Pippin Parker (May 6-29). There will also be an additional Public LAB show, this winter, which will be announced at a later date.
