Jack's unexpected return to Cincinnati after spending several years in New York throws his family into a frenzy - and his sister Lorna and mother Barbara want answers! Is he in some sort of trouble? Where's that wife everyone hates? And how did he get all that money? Theresa Rebeck's new comedy, which opened on Broadway in 2012, tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values and whether or not your family will always welcome you back.
