Called "a funny, furious tale" by New York Magazine, The Lyons follows an amusing, dysfunctional family at the hospital bedside of the patriarch, Ben Lyons, who's dying from cancer. His wife and two adult children gather for an atypical goodbye. Ben, freed from social conventions because of his condition, lets his words fly unfiltered -- curses included. Rita, his partner in a 40-year-long loveless marriage, finds her mind drifting toward thoughts of the future -- and home redecoration. The couple's alcoholic daughter and gay son have their own issues and agendas. Written by Nicky Silver (Beautiful Child), The Lyons was nominated for a number of awards for its 2012 Broadway run.

Reviews & Ratings
By Ray Bradbury, based on his novel
Directed by Sharon Ott
Bradbury’s masterpiece about a future without books comes chillingly to life in an adaptation by the legendary author himself.
Firemen in this futuristic world burn books and hunt down anyone who risks reading them. Free-thought and intellectualism are discouraged, questioning authority is dangerous, and the masses are spoon-fed a diet of interactive reality shows on their huge TVs. Montag, a fireman in charge of burning the forbidden volumes, befriends a young woman who dares to read. Suddenly a hunted fugitive, he must choose between safety and intellectual freedom.
Bradbury’s message still resonates today in this production utilizing cutting-edge special effects and projections.
