From the company that brought you Dan Gordon's Murder in the First and Jack Canfora's Poetic License to 59E59.
Several years after tragedy impacted their lives, a family comes together once again for Thanksgiving dinner. While family members struggle to come to terms with residual anger, grief and guilt, Jack Canfora's thought-provoking play explores how people cope with personal and collective catastrophe.
Displaying surprising humor and biting wit, this Jericho, Long Island clan exposes their desperate strategies for resolution and redemption.
The National New Play Network World Premiere of Jericho was produced through the NNPN Continued Life Fund by the New Jersey Repertory Company, (Long Branch, NJ) Phoenix Theatre (Indianapolis, IN) and Florida Studio Theatre (Sarasota, FL.)
