2nd Story Stages THE LYONS, Now thru 2/9
2nd Story Theatre will present THE LYONS by Nicky Silver, directed by Mark Peckham at DownStage at 2nd Story Theatre from today, January 10 - February 9, 2014.
As Ben Lyons lies dying, his wife of forty years, Rita, flips through decorating magazines, planning a living room makeover. When their children are summoned to Ben's hospital bedside, all efforts at a sentimental goodbye to the dying patriarch are soon abandoned as they snidely trade accusations, savagely reveal secrets, and hilariously kick the ego out of one another. Razor-sharp, black comedy perfection.
