We Live Here
ZOE KAZAN, one of New York's most acclaimed young actors, whose stage credits include Angels in America, A Behanding in Spokane and MTC's Come Back, Little Sheba, returns to MTC for her New York playwriting debut. This world-premiere, MTC-commissioned play is helmed by SAM GOLD, whose inspired direction of Kin and Circle Mirror Transformation have made him one of the theatre's most sought-after directors.
Allie Bateman’s wedding is Sunday. When Dinah, her precocious younger sister, returns to their parents' home for the festivities, she brings more than anyone expected: a new boyfriend, whose hidden history resurrects passions and painful memories for the whole family. Over one emotionally charged weekend, the Batemans find they must acknowledge and accept loss to gain hope for regeneration.
An incisive and beautifully rendered portrait of a contemporary family coming together through grief and celebration, WE LIVE HERE features MARK BLUM (Twelve Angry Men), JESSICA COLLINS (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), BETTY GILPIN (MTC's That Face), Academy Award® nominee AMY IRVING (The Coast of Utopia, Yentl), OSCAR ISAAC (MTC's Beauty of the Father) and JEREMY SHAMOS (MTC’s Reckless).
