The House in Scarsdale: A Memoir for the Stage
by Dan O'Brien
directed by Michael Michetti
May 6 - June 4, 2017
As Tolstoy said “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” In The House in Scarsdale, playwright Dan O’Brien traces the roots of his family’s particular unhappiness to learn why his parents and siblings cut him off years ago. The more Dan learns about his family, the more mysterious the circumstances surrounding their estrangement become, until his world is shaken when rumors surface that his real father might be another member of the family. Ultimately, Dan must decide if his pathological pursuit of the truth is worth the risk or should he follow the advice of a psychic and make his life a never-finished work of art.
