The 12:30 and 4 PM readings feature the talents of Sandy Duncan, Ally Sheedy, Molly Regan, Manuel Herrera, Lauren Pritchard, Craig De Lorenzo, Louis Zorich and Antonia Rey. Austin Pendleton directs. Labor Days, according to press notes, "interweaves the personal stories of three generations of an Italian-American family that never involve mob connections, Wiseguys or any of the other stereotypical depictions of this once-dominant immigrant ethnic part of American life. From the 1920s through the 1970s, the small town characters reflect changing times and attitudes, and like the inhabitants of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, or Chekhov's Russian villages, they influence each other in ways they could not predict. Behavior skips a generation. Ambitions replace family loyalties. Secrets poison relationships. And in the end, loss leads to growth."
