AFTER THE REVOLUTION Presented by Playwrights Horizons.The New York Premiere of a new play by Amy Herzog. Directed by Carolyn Cantor.
After a critically acclaimed run at Williamstown Theater Festival, this "smart, funny, and provocative" new play comes to Playwrights Horizons with a cast that "couldn't be better" (Variety). A bold and moving portrait of an American family forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy, Amy Herzog's "After the Revolution" features Tony Award nominees Lois Smith and Peter Friedman, Academy Award nominee Mare Winningham, and stage vets Mark Blum and David Margulies. "A terrific production featuring a dream ensemble. It will have audiences talking not only about the issues it raises of persecution, responsibility and idealism, but also about its compelling and complex characters" (Variety).
'You can look back and say we did this wrong, or we did that wrong,
but the point is it was for something.'
The brilliant, promising Emma Joseph proudly carries the torch of her family's Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved. After the Revolution is a bold and moving portrait of an American family, thrown into an intergenerational tailspin, forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy.
