THE LYONS is a comedic work starring Linda Lavin as Rita Lyons, the indomitable matriarch of a family at a major crossroads: her husband is dying, her son's in a dubious relationship, her daughter's struggling to stay sober and on top of it all, she can't settle on a new design for the living room.

THE LYONS was the ninth play by Nicky Silver to debut at The Vineyard, and will be his first-ever play on Broadway. His other Vineyard premieres include PTERODACTYLS, RAISED IN CAPTIVITY, THE EROS TRILOGY, THE MAIDEN'S PRAYER, THE ALTRUISTS, BEAUTIFUL CHILD as well as MY MARRIAGE TO Ernest Borgnine and THE AGONY AND THE AGONY. Other notable plays include THREE CHANGES, THE FOOD CHAIN, FAT MEN IN SKIRTS, FIT TO BE TIED, FREE WILL AND WANTON LUST. He wrote the new book for the Broadway revival of the Rodgers and Hart musical, THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE.

The design team for THE LYONS at The Vineyard continues on Broadway: scenic design by Allen Moyer; lighting design by David Lander; costume design by Michael Krass; and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem.
