Blood From a Stone - Off-Broadway


An electric and darkly comic portrayal of a troubled working-class family in New Britain, CT. Travis visits his parents home to check on his brother Matt and his mother, only to find himself sucked into intractable conflicts, and a whole household on the verge of implosion. Blood From A Stone is a stunning and shattering debut by Tommy Nohilly.


Running Time: 2 hours and 50 minutes, with one intermission

Blood From a Stone Off-Broadway Cast


by Ben Peltz - January 20, 2011
First-time playwright Tommy Nohilly seems intent on ramming edgy family dysfunctions in the audience's faces with Blood From A Stone.  Unfortunately there's no play underneath to support it all.  Director Scott Elliott and The New Group do a heck of a good job covering up the flaws of the text most of the time, but the nearly three hours of animosity and head-banging symbolism can't help looking very silly now and then, despite the skilled ensemble.
