Calendar Notice for The Lyons February 20 – March 14
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (January 12, 2015) – TheatreWorks New Milford will be opening its 2015 Main Stage Season with Nicky Silver's scathing comedy-drama, THE LYONS.
The story begins as Ben Lyons lays dying in a hospital room. Rita, his wife of forty years, flips through decorating magazines, planning a living room makeover. It's clear this couple has been at war for most of their lives. When they're joined by their children, Lisa and Curtis, the pent-up acrimony increases and all efforts at a sentimental goodbye are soon abandoned. After Curtis's desperate attempt to make a new connection ends disastrously, each of THE LYONS take their first tentative steps toward making a new human connection in this intense and comedic tale.
The production features some of the finest actors in the region: Elizabeth Young (Newtown), Courtney Lauria (Wilton), Jody Bayer (Danbury), and William Hughes, Joseph Russo, and James Hipp (all New Milford).
THE LYONS is under the direction of Matt Austin of Danbury.
