Performances began Oct. 26 and play the Connelly Theatre on East 4th Street in the East Village. Jack Cummings III directs the play based on James Agee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "A Death in the Family," about a Tennessee woman suddenly confronted with the death of someone close to her — and the loss' aftermath.

The play was originally produced on Broadway in 1960, directed by Arthur Penn, and starred Lillian Gish, Arthur Hill and Colleen Dewhurst, who received a Tony Award for her performance. It was the last Mosel play to be seen on Broadway and is the author's major credit.

The new cast includes Barbara Andres, Patrick Boll, John Braden, Alice Cannon, Corinne Edgerly, Chandler Frantz, Patrick Gilbert, Joseph Kolinski, Michael Lewis, Tom Ligon, Ben Masur, Joanna Parson, Monica Russell, Irma St. Paule and Letty Serra.

Founded in 2001 by artistic director Jack Cummings III and executive director Robyn Hussa, Transport Group's productions have included First Lady Suite, The Audience, Normal and cul-de-sac.

Tickets are $20 and are available by phoning (212) 352-3101. For more information about Transport Group and All the Way Home, visit www.transportgroup.org.
