It’s been 50 years since William Inge’s controversial drama Natural Affection first premiered on Broadway in 1963. Now, the rarely performed play is back in its first major New York City revival at off-Broadway’s Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row. Led by Law & Order star Kathryn Erbe, the show follows a single mother who reconnects with her troubled son whom she gave up years earlier. To say that the play is a shocker would be an understatement—you’ll have to see it to believe just how gripping and heartbreaking it is. Regardless of the play's dark drama, happiness was the key word on September 26 when the cast (including John Pankow, Eve Bianco, Tobi Aremu, Chris Bert, Victoria Mack and Alec Beard) celebrated opening night. Check out the Hot Shot above, and then find out what Natural Affection is all about before it ends its run on October 26!
