The four-person ensemble features Kathleen Chalfant, Rosemarie DeWitt, Quincy Tyler Bernstine and Sami Gayle. (The Off-Broadway run delayed its official opening night to May 4.) "A year after the death of her son, Claire checks into a recovery center in the desert, searching for a way to cope," according to MCC Theater. "When her mother, daughter and sister arrive to participate in 'family week,' long-dormant traumas collide with recent tragedies in surprisingly comical, shocking and deeply moving ways. United in this family struggle, the women rage and reach out in an effort to reconcile their love with the way things are."
A pre-opening party was held April 26 for the cast of the new play:
Off-Broadway's Family Week Party
Tickets to Family Week at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, 121 Christopher Street, are available by calling (212) 279-4200 or at www.mcctheater.org.
