Roundabout Theatre Company's world-premiere production of Steven Levenson's The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin officially opens June 27 following previews that began May 31 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
Directed by Scott Ellis, the play will continue through Aug. 25.
Unavoidable Disappearance, according to the Roundabout, is described as such: "Tom Durnin did the time for his white-collar crime. Now, he’s determined to win back the respect he believes he deserves—even if that means ripping apart the new life his family has so carefully put together in his absence. Tom’s son warily allows his father to camp out on his couch, hoping the man who let everyone down has finally turned a new page. After a lifetime of empty promises, can Tom find a place in a family that has worked so hard to move on without him?"
The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin is part of Roundabout’s New Play Initiative, a collection of programs designed to foster and produce new work by emerging and established artists. Tom Durnin was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company following Levenson’s New York debut with The Language of Trees in 2008 at Roundabout Underground.
Tickets are available online at roundabouttheatre.org, by phone at (212) 719-1300, or in person at the Laura Pels Box Office (111 West 46th Street). Ticket prices range from $71-$81.
