Tickets are now on sale for a rare off-Broadway revival of William Inge’s Natural Affection, starring TV and stage favorites John Pankow (Mad About You) and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). The season opener of The Actors Company Theatre will begin previews on September 17 at the Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row and open on September 26, directed by Jenn Thompson.
The play centers on a troubled young man, abandoned early in life by his single mother, who returns from reform school to find her living with a lover. Tension mounts as their fight for forgiveness and connection gives way to desperation, setting the family on a violent collision course.
Natural Affection is getting its first NYC production since its 1963 Broadway debut in honor of the centennial of William Inge. Get tickets now to see a little-known work by an American master!
