A quintessentially English family, or "kitchen sink" drama, Simon Stephens' award-winning On the Shore of the Wide World makes its New York premiere this August. First staged in Manchester, UK in 2005, it transferred to London's National Theatre later that year, winning the 2006 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play. Following the story of the Stockport-based Holmes family across three generations, it examines the aftermaths of various events that hit the long-suffering family, demonstrating that family are often bound together through strife.
