Photo Flash: First Look at Diane Kondrat and More in Phoenix Theatre's THE LYONS
Scroll below for photos of the cast onstage!
The Lyons is the funny and stirring tale about a family grappling with the impending death of its patriarch, Ben Lyons. As his wife Rita and their grown children gather to say goodbye, they learn that despite being a family, each of them is completely isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude (and trapped in a hospital room for the entire first act) they are propelled into the foreign territory of human connection. At a distance these characters are hilarious as they kick the ego out of one another. But look at them closely and the audience will likely find an intimate mirror of their own frightened self.
Dying patriarch Curtis Lyons (Charles Goad) tries to get along with his nurse (Mercedes Martinez).
