"A not-to-be-missed revival"

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Closed 25 Aug 2013

A famous poet-intellectual, his daughter, and her husband - people made of very different moral fiber despite their shared highbrow interests - witness the subtle and flagrant transformations of everyday life, public affairs and personal relationships until they finally are dragged into the middle of things themselves.

This searing and disturbing drama, prescient of much that occurred during the Bush/Obama years, has been called Shawn’s masterpiece.
