The Lyons is about a family grappling with the impending death of its patriarch. The indomitable matriarch of the family is at a major crossroads: her husband is dying, her son's in a dubious relationship, her daughter's struggling to stay sober and on top of it all, she can't settle on a new design for the living room. When they gather to say goodbye, they learn that despite being a family, each of them is utterly isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude, they are propelled into foreign territory—human connection.

The show runs May 2-18, 2014 at the Kalita Humphreys Theater.
