THE STORY: After years of estrangement, two brothers, Billy and David, reenter each other’s lives when Billy shows up unannounced in David’s Wall Street office. It’s only a matter of time before Billy overstays his welcome, reopening old wounds and inflicting new ones, as the two finally come to terms with the traumatic event that tore them apart. It’s a fine line between love and loathing in this riveting exploration of fraternal connection.
“Few playwrights depict domestic tension with the subtlety and insight of Donald Margulies. …In a quietly explosive 90 minutes, [LONG LOST] explores the difficulty of letting go of the past, and how seemingly small cracks in relationships can lead to foundation-shattering destruction.” —Time Out NY. “…Margulies keeps you on the edge of your seat—or rather, brother Billy does. …[Billy] could be a character right out of Sam Shepard’s world—charismatic, dangerous, unpredictable and ultimately sympathetic (thanks to Margulies’s sleight of hand).” —
