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.

Honest, poignant, inspirational, and surprisingly funny, ReEntry is an unflinching look at the lives of Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s about stepping off that plane and coming home, re-entering ones life, family, and country – again.
With dialogue taken directly from interviews with privates and colonels, combat vets and clerks, and one particularly memorable family, ReEntry tells the stories you haven’t heard. It puts politics and Hollywood aside to probe the unvarnished, powerfully personal truths of those who serve and sacrifice.
How do you shift from battlefields to backyard barbecues? What’s the price paid by families when husbands, mothers, sons, and sisters go to war?
