Show Info

By James Anthony Tyler
Directed by Joe Cacaci

With Wendell Pierce (Treme, Suits) and Tony Award-winner Roger Robinson (How to Get Away with Murder)

When college professor, Calvin Jones, moves his 82-year-old doggedly independent, blue collar, ailing, father from Greenwald, Mississippi into his Harlem penthouse, an argument over what to eat for breakfast turns into a generational clash over race, opportunity, and a decision that Calvin made years ago.

Producing Company

Berkshire Playwrights Lab

Berkshire Playwrights Lab was founded in 2007 by Joe Cacaci, Jim Frangione, Bob Jaffe and Matthew Penn to encourage, develop and present new plays. BPL quickly made a name for itself with its flagship program, the Staged Reading Series, presented on select summer Wednesdays at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center.  Their mission is to provide the playwright with space to create. Berkshire Playwrights Lab provides an opportunity for emerging and established playwrights to find a secure berth where they can develop new work and/or explore new avenues of creativity. Without a commitment to nurturing new voices and new talent, the American theater is losing promising playwrights. Through readings, workshops and fully-staged productions, BPL provides emerging and established writers with a professional and creative environment, while offering audiences the engaging and provocative opportunity to share in the dramatic evolution of premiere works.
