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.
