About this show

Inspired by mid-century Hollywood melodrama, specifically the films of Nicholas Ray and Douglas Sirk, this work re-imagines the genre to explore the pain, pressure and isolation of America's addiction to heroism. Through the intimate story of one man's struggle against society's conventional demands, it depicts a family and a nation coming apart at the seams---a people that aspire to heroism only to become beastly. Featuring Thomas J. Ryan (The Little Foxes, In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play) and Christina Rouner (Coram Boy, The Duchess of Malfi), with set design by Peter Ksander and costumes by Kaye Voyce.
