Concord Theatricals has secured exclusive worldwide English-speaking stage licensing rights to Sharr White’s recent Broadway play, Pictures from Home, for its Samuel French imprint. The play is available now for licensing. For more information, visit .

“I’m thrilled that Pictures from Home will be carried by Concord Theatricals,” said White. “When I was a young acting student highlighting dialogue in my many iconic Sam French Acting Editions, I never imagined that I might one day be included in such a storied catalog.”

“We are honored to be adding Sharr White’s affecting play Pictures from Home to the Samuel French catalog of plays,” said Amy Rose Marsh, Vice President of Acquisitions and Artistic Development at Concord Theatricals. “Sharr’s sensitive observations about family life – the ups and downs, the complications, the joyful points – coupled with Larry Sultan’s starkly honest photographs, make for a moving theatrical experience. These are characters every audience will find themselves in.”

Playwright Sharr White transforms photographer Larry Sultan’s landmark photo memoir for the stage in his new play, Pictures from Home. In the 1980s, Sultan spent a decade photographing and interviewing his parents, and unearthing the memories beneath his family’s home movies. The result is a deeply intimate and comic portrait of a mother, a father and their son. Though set in the recent past, this poignant and theatrically inventive play is both of-the-moment and timeless.

Pictures from Home premiered at Broadway’s Studio 54 Theatre on February 9, 2023 for a strictly limited engagement through April 30. This inaugural production was directed by Bartlett Sher, and starred Broadway stalwarts, Nathan Lane, Zoë Wanamaker and Danny Burstein. The play was part of the 2020 Alley All New Festival, and marked its regional premiere at the Tony Award®-winning Alley Theatre in Houston, TX from January 19, 2024 through February 11.
