Photo Coverage: The Voysey Inheritance Opens

​

Michael Stuhlbarg and Fritz Weaver star in the Atlantic Theater Company's New York premiere production of David Mamet's new adaptation of Harley Granville Barker's play The Voysey Inheritance, which opened on December 6th after beginning previews on November 15th.  It will play a limited run through January 7th.

Directed by David Warren (Holiday, Summer and Smoke), the show features Stuhlbarg (The Pillowman, Measure for Pleasure, The Invention of Love), Tony Award-winner Weaver (Ring Round The Moon, The Crucible, Child's Play), as well as Steven Goldstein, Todd Weeks, Rachel Black, Christopher Duva, Peter Maloney, Katharine Powell, Judith Roberts, Geddeth Smith, Samantha Soule, and CJ Wilson.

Mamet's (Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo) new adaptation of Harley Granville Barker's classic play "explores the timely issue of morals vs. money as an upper middle class family goes to pieces when it is revealed that the patriarch (Weaver) has amassed the family fortune by secretly embezzling money from his clients.  As his son (Stuhlbarg) tries to put things in order, he discovers that the family is more than willing to perpetuate this way of doing business, rather than sacrifice their comfort and luxury," press materials state.  One of the influential pioneers of modern British drama and a contemporary of George Bernard Shaw, Granville-Barker wrote The Voysey Inheritance in 1905. One hundred years after its publication, David Mamet's world premiere adaptation of the classic play opened at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco in March 2005.
