Don't Go Gentle
Judge Lawrence Driver: conservative powerhouse on the bench, failure at home. Now retired, widowed, and seeking redemption, Lawrence volunteers to do pro bono legal work with Tanya, a vulnerable ex-con with a troubled teenage son, while working to repair the increasingly complicated relationships with his own adult children. But do-overs don’t come easy, and when his newfound generosity is perceived as condescension, Lawrence runs the risk of losing everything.
Don’t Go Gentle is a world premiere by Stephen Belber, whose chronicles of moral ambiguity include Tape, Dusk Rings A Bell, and Match on Broadway. Acclaimed director Lucie Tiberghian, a frequent collaborator with Belber, directed his play Geometry of Fire at the Rattlestick Theater. She most recently directed the West Coast premiere of Blood and Gifts at the La Jolla Playhouse.
