Returning home can often be fraught with family drama. For Ruth Hemmerich, bringing her young son to meet her parents is marred with a dark history and racial tensions. Set in 1962 with flashbacks to the late 1920s, in the home of Marion and Henry Hemmerich, the family tries to navigate social and familial expectations in the wake of loss that echoes through the generations.
The production stars Arthur Aulisi* (Uncle Vanya; The Gene Frankel Theatre) as Henry, Derrick Delgado as David (child), Thursday Farrar* (3rd Nat'l Tour: Les Miserables) as Lillian, Jake Roberson (Zounds; Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019) as Young Henry, Jace Swinger as David (child), Campbell Symes (The Death of a Miner; The Neighborhood Playhouse) as Young Marion, Kirrin Tubo (The Woman/The Man; Lenfest Center for the Arts, Columbia University) as Young Lillian, Cheri Wicks* (King Lear; American Bard Theater Company) as Marion and Sarah Young (Caucasian Chalk Circle; Tobacco Factory Theatre) as Ruth. *Performing courtesy of Actor's Equity Association.
