Long Lost by Donald Margulies

THE STORY: From Donald Margulies, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of such works as Time Stands Still and Dinner with Friends, comes a funny, unsettling, ultimately moving play about the limits of compassion and filial obligation. When troubled Billy appears out of the blue in his estranged brother David’s Wall Street office, he soon tries to reinsert himself into the comfortable life David has built with his philanthropist wife and college-age son. What does Billy really want? Can he be trusted? And how much can family bonds smooth over past rifts?

“A poet of strained friendships and family relations.” —The New York Times. “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 New York. “…Margulies keeps you on the edge of your seat…[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).” —TheaterPizzazz.com.
