THE LYONS to Open 1/16 at 2nd Story Theatre

THE LYONS by Nicky Silver will be directed by Mark Peckham at DownStage at 2nd Story Theatre, running January 16 - 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 knock each other down a peg or two. Razor-sharp, black comedy perfection.

Performances: January 16 - February 9 - Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00PM; Sundays at 3:00PM. Additional Performance: Sunday, January 19 @ 7:00PM. Discussion Sunday: Jan. 26 - humanities discussion immediately following the 3:00PM performance. Ticket Price: $25; Age 21 & Under: $20. 2nd Story Theatre DownStage is located at 28 Market Street, Warren, RI. Contact the Box Office by calling 401-247-4200, or buy online at, or via email at
