Riveting seriocomedy by the creator of TV’s hit drama Brothers & Sisters. Are there secrets that should always be kept? In this smart, sharply funny, and sensitive contemporary play, Jon Robin Baitz folds art, politics, and family secrets into a tumultuous drama that pits a liberal middle-aged writer against her conservative parents. Who owns a family’s history? There are no easy answers in this 2012 Pulitzer Prize-nominated play where certainty shifts like sand dunes in the wind.
