28 MARCHANT AVENUE, a new play examining five summers at The Kennedy Family's Hyannis Port compound, receives its world premiere production this month at New York City's Clarion Theatre. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

28 MARCHANT AVENUE examines the Kennedy Family's summers at Hyannis Port leading up to the lobotomy of eldest daughter Rosemary, and its aftermath within the family's Connecticut compound. The play offers an insider's look into intimate conversations within the family as it grapples with Rosemary's disability. The play reveals Rosemary's great potential, as later discovered in her private diaries, and the way it was tragically stolen from her.

Each play focuses on a different real-life story, with a cast of 25 portraying some of history's most intriguing characters. View the trailer here.
