The cast of Williamstown Theatre Festival's summer production of Amy Herzog's After the Revolution reunites at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons for the play's New York City premiere beginning Oct. 21.
According to production notes, "In After the Revolution, the brilliant, promising Emma Joseph (played by Powell) proudly carries the torch of her family's Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved. After the Revolution is a bold and moving portrait of an American family, thrown into an intergenerational tailspin, forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy."
Here's a look at the cast:
