Merrimack Repertory Theatre to Close Season with HOME OF THE BRAVE
by BWW News Desk - Apr 4, 2016

Merrimack Repertory Theatre will close out its season in spectacular fashion with the world premiere of Lila Rose Kaplan's farce 'Home of the Brave.'

Loosely inspired by Moliere's 'Tartuffe,' 'Home of the Brave' is an old-fashioned comedy for new-fashioned times, wholeheartedly embracing sheer absurdity, shameless fun, and actors running/climbing/sliding all over the place. Maybe dressed as ninjas. Or in their underwear. Yet at its core, 'Home of the Brave' remains a big-hearted love letter to the American family. MRT's Artistic Director Sean Daniels directs. (more...)
