See Craig Bierko and Len Cariou in Harry Townsend's Last Stand
The new play is running off-Broadway.
Videos have been released from George Eastman's Harry Townsend's Last Stand, starring Len Cariou and Craig Bierko. Performances run at New York City Center's Stage II under the direction of Karen Carpenter.
Described as "a story of complex family dynamics, passion, humor and the shorthand of communication that we have with our loved ones," Harry Townsend's Last Stand centers around 85-year-old Harry Townsend, a widower, living alone in the Lakeside home he built in Vermont. While he still possesses a sharp mind and a dry wit, he is getting up there in age. Beside his daughter, Sarah, the one happiness in his life is his son, Alan, who is finally coming home after an 18-month absence. Yet Alan's return is accompanied by an agenda that puts the aging father and his concerned son at odds.
The creative team includes Lauren Helpern (scenic design), David C. Woolard (costumes), Jeff Davis (lighting), and John Gromada (sound).
