Why See The American Plan?

An exciting new look at an early, acclaimed play by the Tony Award-winning author of Take Me Out. It is the Catskill Mountains in the early 1960s, and Lili Adler and her mother Eva are spending the summer across the lake from a bustling hotel where comics entertain and buffets overflow.

When a handsome young stranger enters their world, the emotionally fragile Lili finds herself falling in love. But once her imperious mother learns of their relationship, lies are exposed, alliances are forged and Lili's one chance to escape her mother's control may be lost forever.

Playwright Richard Greenberg continues his long association with MTC where his other New York premieres have included The Violet Hour, Three Days of Rain and Eastern Standard. The cast includes Kieran Campion, Austin Lysy, Brenda Pressley, Lily Rabe and Mercedes Ruehl.
