About this show

Amy Herzog's (Hungry, Willing) provocative new play After the Revolution makes its journey from the Festival's Fellowship Project last summer to the Nikos Stage, directed by former Boris Sagal Fellow Carolyn Cantor (In a Dark, Dark House, Pumpgirl). It's 1999, and three generations of a radical leftist family meet in New York to celebrate the law school graduation of Emma, the family's youngest torch-carrier. A public revelation about her late grandfather, a victim of the blacklist, sends Emma reeling as the family begins to fracture. Shaken and betrayed, she must weigh her fierce politics and family loyalty to decide if the ends really justify the means. Developed from scratch at WTF, After the Revolution is a play about love, family secrets, and the American Left. Following Williamstown, After the Revolution will be seen in New York at Playwrights Horizons this fall.
