The production is now playing through through March 23, 2014 with a March 3 opening night in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). Check out a first look at the cast in action below!

People have been born into families since people started getting born at all. Playwrights have been trying to write Family Plays for a long time, too. And typically these plays try to answer endlessly complicated questions of blood and duty and inheritance and responsibility. They try to answer the question, "Can things really change?" People have been trying nobly for years and years to have plays solve in two hours what hasn't been solved in many lifetimes. This has to stop. THE OPEN HOUSE is an hour and twenty minutes, with no intermission.
The design team includes Antje Ellermann (Set Design), Bobby Frederick Tilley II (Costume Design), David Lander (Lighting Design), and M.L. Dogg (Sound Design). Donald Fried is the Production Stage Manager. Casting by Telsey + Company.
