The New Group describes the play as "an unflinching and darkly comic depiction of life in blue collar Connecticut, [which] zeroes in on a working class family wrestling to keep it together as day-to-day struggles exert their squeeze. When Travis pays a visit to his parents' home, he finds an already volatile household imploding and his close-knit but deeply conflicted family teetering on the brink."
Here is a look at the cast and guests:
