About this show

The Lyons, Nicky Silver's outrageously funny and stirring play about a family coming to terms with the impending death of its patriarch received glowing reviews when it ran on Broadway in 2012. The play focuses on Rita Lyons and her grown children, who, as they gather to say goodbye, learn that despite being a family, each of them is totally isolated. Afraid of closeness and solitude, they are pushed into a new arena - the human connection. New York Magazine's Scott Brown said The Lyons is "simply trying to tell a funny, furious little tale of family annihilation with honesty, savagery, and humanity."
