About The Oldest Boy - Off Broadway

Show Info

Nov 3, 2014


Visionary playwright Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House) returns to Lincoln Center Theater with THE OLDEST BOY, her newest play, directed by Rebecca Taichman. In this moving and delightful exploration of motherhood, love and letting go, Tony Award® nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Glass Menagerie) stars as an American mother whose young son is believed to be the reincarnation of a high Buddhist Lama. When Tibetan monks arrive unexpectedly, asking to take her child away for a life of spiritual training in India, she and her Tibetan husband must make a life-altering choice that will test their faith… and their hearts. THE OLDEST BOY is Sarah Ruhl at her imaginative best – a richly emotional journey filled with music, dance, puppetry, laughter, intimate moments and infinite meanings.
