Death of the Liberal Class

About This Show

In Robert Lyons’ new play a burned-out, left-wing journalist retreats to the family farm for peace of mind — until his teenage daughter follows, bringing all the anger he’s left behind, not to mention her hacktivist boyfriend. When his wife shows up to negotiate their split, his newfound vision of being happy proves more elusive than he imagined.

Inspired by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges’ book of the same name, Death of the Liberal Class is a dark domestic comedy about liberal parenting, capitalist co-option, and losing (or finding) your edge.
