Director Philip Seymour Hoffman celebrated the opening of the world premiere of Brett C. Leonard's The Long Red Road at Chicago's Goodman Theatre.
Academy Award-winning actor Hoffman made his Chicago directorial debut with The Long Red Road. He directs a cast that includes Tom Hardy, Marcos Akiaten, Greta Hanold, Chris McGarry, Fiona Robert and Katy Sullivan. According to press materials, The Long Red Road is "a raw and provocative new play about how one person's anguish can tear a family apart. Sam attempts to drink away his past and exorcise his demons on an Indian reservation in South Dakota, where he has been trying to forget his role in a tragic accident with his family. When a visitor from his past arrives on the reservation, Sam is forced to face his guilt—and take a harrowing look at the man he has become."
