A Family Man
A Family Man
By Tom Szentgyorgyi.

Cast: 4m., 3w. (1 child.) Winner of a Joseph Jefferson Citation as one of the best new plays of the year, A Family Man chronicles the misadventures of Jake, an enthusiastic and completely unreliable young man on the run from a loan shark. With his pregnant wife, Sammy, and her young son in tow, Jake travels the country looking for a place where he can make a home and provide for his family: two tasks to which he brings limitless energy and a sociopath's instincts. "By the end of its rapid-fire two hours," wrote critic Hedy Weiss, "you realize just how wonderfully subversive and deeply disturbing this haunting, deceptively simple little work really is. And you feel the true weight of the profound and too often deeply suppressed questions the playwright has raised about the meaning of family, parental responsibility, economic insecurity, and the nature of love." "...the season's strangest, quirkiest, most unsettling and most original new drama." (Chicago Tribune) Area Staging.
