A Family Thing, a new play by Orange is the New Black writer and producer Gary Lennon, is heading to Broadway. The dark comedy aims to open on the Great White Way in 2015. Further information, including creative team, dates and cast, will be announced at a later date.
A Family Thing explores how the concept of family binds us together and tears us apart. In the play, three estranged brothers, once connected by a tumultuous childhood on the streets of Hell's Kitchen, reunite to settle unfinished business. The play received its world premiere at Los Angeles’ Echo Theater in 2013, where it was nominated for three L.A. Drama Critics Awards.
Lennon’s other plays include Blackout, .45 and The Interlopers. On the small screen, Lennon has also written for The Shield and Justified.
