Seating chart & directions
It is summer 1923, and architect Frank Lloyd Wright (Peter Weller, "24," "Robocop," "Naked Lunch") has recently left Chicago for California, determined to embrace Hollywood's youthful zest and mend broken relationships with his adult children. Having completed his latest "wonder of the world" - Tokyo's Imperial Hotel - Wright is poised to settle down and embrace his new home. But his splintered family still holds deep-seated resentments. Frank's Home is a lyrical, heartbreaking story about one of our greatest, if less than perfect, visionaries - a man who created a new architectural vocabulary but couldn't create a home for himself and his family.
Frank's Home marks Tony Award®-winning playwright Richard Nelson's eighth collaboration with Playwrights Horizons, including James Joyce's The Dead, Rodney's Wife, and Goodnight Children Everywhere (Olivier Award). Mr. Nelson's other plays include Two Shakespearean Actors and Madame Melville.
Robert Falls' New York directing credits include the Broadway revivals of Death of a Salesman (Tony Award®) and Long Day's Journey Into Night (Drama Desk Award), as well as Shining City, Aida, subUrbia (Obie Award), and the upcoming Broadway revival of Talk Radio.
