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.

Written and directed by Ping Chong and Sara Michelle Zatz, a Bethesda native, in collaboration with the featured performers, Inside/Out showcases the firsthand experiences of members of the disability community. Individual histories are interconnected in a script performed by the participants themselves, giving voice to individuals whose stories frequently go unheard.
Inside/Out is part of Ping Chong & Company’s Undesirable Elements, an ongoing series of oral history theatre works exploring key issues of identity in different communities. Each production is made with a partner organization in a host community, with local participants testifying about their real lives and experiences.
Renowned New York theatre company Ping Chong & Company was founded in 1975 to create and tour innovative works of theatre and art that explore the intersection of race, history, culture, and technology in the modern world. Inside/Out was commissioned by VSA – The International Organization on Arts and Disability. VSA is an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
