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.

My fiance and I loved this show. The best Roundhouse play we've seen yet. It was heartfelt, honest, touching and funny all at once. The actors were excellent and the story really moved nicely. The only criticism would be that the last 15 or so minutes dragged and could have been shortened, but that wouldn't stop me from recommending this play to everyone.
