About this show

Theresa Rebeck, one of the country's most acclaimed and widely produced playwrights, returns to Primary Stages with her gripping new family drama, Downstairs. This thrilling production stars real-life siblings Tyne and Tim Daly, appearing together for the first time on a New York stage. In Downstairs, Teddy is a bit lost and lives in his older sister Irene's unfinished basement to the vexation of her husband Gerry. As Irene and Teddy struggle with this less-than-ideal living arrangement, they quickly find themselves grappling with the burden of their family's troublesome history. While trying to mend the past, the pair unearth a foreboding danger threatening to break the perilously thin bonds holding them together.
