About this show

In this deeply autobiographical work, Tony and Pulitzer Prize Winner John Patrick Shanley tackles his past. A surreal comedy, Beggars in the House of Plenty is packed with the wit, insight, confusion, laughter and pain that only family can bring. At once vulgar, poetic and brutally honest, Johnny leads us on a journey through his childhood in the Bronx of the mid-1950's to the turbulent late 60's and finally the perspective of his adulthood.
