About this show

The Drama Desk and Obie Award-wining Mint Theater Company presents a rare New York revival of Harley Granville Barker's 1909 The Madras House. Gus Kaikkonen directs a cast that includes Roberta Maxwell, George Morfogen, Laurie Kennedy, and Jonathan Hogan. Phillip Madras is the heir to a leading London fashion emporium established by his father Constantine, a legendary designer who has abandoned his family and the evils of the West, converted to Mohammedism, and established a polygamous household in Iraq. Constantine's return to England to sell the family business precipitates a series of loosely connected scenes that serve as "a merciless critique of that ragbag of attitudes we now call 'family values.'"
