Concord Theatricals has acquired Sharr White's 2023 play Pictures From Home, which the company will license via its Samuel French imprint. The title is already available for performances.

Adapted from the landmark photo memoir from late photographer Larry Sultan, the show follows Larry and his parents, Irving and Jean, who he photographs as they make their journey from Brooklyn to the San Fernando Valley. Danny Burstein, Nathan Lane, and Zoë Wanamaker starred in the play's 2023 world premiere at Broadway's Studio 54. Bartlett Sher directed. A regional premiere recently played Houston's Alley Theatre, which also hosted a developmental reading of the piece in 2020.

"I'm thrilled that Pictures From Home will be carried by Concord Theatricals," says White in a statement. "When I was a young acting student highlighting dialogue in my many iconic Sam French Acting Editions, I never imagined that I might one day be included in such a storied catalog." Pictures From Home is the playwright's first title to join the Samuel French collection. The bulk of Sharr's plays, including The Snow Geese and The Other Place, are licensed by Broadway Licensing Group's Dramatists Play Service.

"We are honored to be adding Sharr White’s affecting play Pictures From Home to the Samuel French catalogue of plays," adds Concord Vice President of Acquisitions and Artistic Development Amy Rose Marsh. "Sharr’s sensitive observations about family life—the ups and downs, the complications, the joyful points—coupled with Larry Sultan’s starkly honest photographs, make for a moving theatrical experience. These are characters every audience will find themselves in."
