Seating chart & directions
The New York Premiere of a funny and moving new play about the joys and heartbreak of family. Faced with their father Marvin’s worsening Alzheimer’s, the four grown Price daughters return for the final Passover celebration in their childhood home. Lily, their overwhelmed mother who's taken up cursing, is planning to put Marvin in a nursing home and sell the house. Each daughter arrives with her own baggage:
Michelle picks up a total stranger to pose as her nice Jewish boyfriend; Angel seduces her ex on the roof; Claire fights with her fiancé about wedding plans; Julia, pregnant with her lesbian life partner, psychoanalyzes everyone except herself. Marvin does not recognize any of them. But when he takes the lead at their last seder, a magical moment occurs which gives the women the strength and courage to finally move forward.
Spend the holidays with the Price Family. It's dysfunctional- just like yours.
