Nicky Silver's play THE LYONS received its world-premiere at the Vineyard Theatre in 2011. The production is a comedic and stirring work about a family grappling with the impending death of its patriarch. When Ben Lyons' wife, Rita, and their grown children gather to say goodbye, they learn that despite being a family, each of them is utterly isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude, they are propelled into foreign territory - human connection.
