The Price was last seen on Broadway in 1999 directed by James Naughton. The story follows the reunion of two estranged brothers who are brought together by their father’s death and the settling of his affairs.
“When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father,” state RTC production notes. “Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long‐stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.”
