The Assembly presents a remount of their hit play, New York Times Critics' Pick HOME/SICK, about the radical student activist movement of the '60s, devised and written collectively, directed by 2017 Lucille Lortel Award winner Jess Chayes, and featuring the original 2011 cast and design team. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

HOME/SICK runs from March 9 - 25, 2017 in a limited engagement at JACK, located at 505 1/2 Waverly Avenue between Fulton St. and Atlantic Ave. in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Previews begin March 9 for a March 11 opening.

Disgusted by the Vietnam War and rampant inequality at home, a handful of leaders from the 1960s U.S. student movement seized control of Students for a Democratic Society and reshaped it in the name of overthrowing the United States' government. Believing violence to be the only means to a true and lasting peace, these passionate idealists accelerated a movement to its breaking point, but left a country behind. Based on real events, HOME/SICK explores the Weather Underground's inspiration and idealism, infighting and ultimate disintegration, in a passionate examination of collective action.

HOME/SICK was devised and written collectively by Stephen Aubrey, Edward Bauer, Ben Beckley, Nick Benacerraf, Kate Benson, Marianne Broome, Jess Chayes, Anna Abhau Elliott, Luke Harlan and Emily Louise Perkins.

The cast includes Anna Abhau Elliott, Edward Bauer, Ben Beckley, Kate Benson, Luke Harlan and Emily Louise Perkins.
