Mixing a nation’s politics with a family in crisis, playwright Jon Robin Baitz uses his extraordinary gifts to bridge the public and the personal in this US smash hit drama.
Former Republican Senator Lyman Wyeth and his wife Polly have it all: wealth, fame and a political legacy of real muscle. In the sun-drenched comfort of Palm Springs they welcome their family back home for Christmas for the first time in years. But when their daughter Brooke announces she’s written a tell-all memoir about the incident that changed their lives, they feel old wounds begin to re-open.
Starring one of Australia’s premier stage actors, Robyn Nevin, this production will feature two thrilling MTC debuts – Associate Artistic Director Sam Strong’s first production in his new role, and the stage design of internationally acclaimed visual artist Callum Morton.
