A seminal Scottish drama that hasn't been seen on an American stage in 30 years, the Griffin Theatre Company proudly presents Ena Lamont Stewart's Men Should Weep. A landmark work that was selected by the National Theatre of London's millennium poll as one of the "Top 100 Plays of the Century," this show is set in Glasgow during the 1930s depression. Focusing on the misfortunes of the Morrison family -- six children, two parents and one grandmother all living together in a disordered tenement home -- this family drama touches on many timeless issues, all stemming from the central theme of poverty. At times touching and lighthearted, at others bitter and cathartic, the quiet power of Men Should Weep will stay with you long after the curtain falls. Learn More
