Helmed by artistic director Joe Dowling, performances continue through Feb. 23 in Minneapolis, MN.
The cast is headed by Peter Michael Goetz and Helen Carey in the roles of James and Mary Tyrone with John Catron as James "Jamie" Tyrone, Jr. and John Skelley as Edmund Tyrone. Rounding out the cast is Laoisa Sexton in her Guthrie debut in the role of Cathleen, the Tyrone family maid.
The play, according to the Guthrie, "centers on one day in the life of the Tyrone family. Like most American families, the Tyrones have experienced highs and lows — from fame and financial success to illness and loss. In the course of that day in their seaside Connecticut home, their familial bond begins to unravel, and James and Mary and their sons Jamie and Edmund confront their demons in a final effort to save their family."
Single tickets start at $29 and are on sale through the Guthrie Box Office at (612) 377-2224 or online at guthrietheater.org.
