A Stone Carver (Off-Broadway) Story

Set and written in the 1970s, A Stone Carver examines an issue that's even more in the news today: the government's power to seize properties for urban development. When a town wants to build a new highway off-ramp and issues eminent domain orders to clear the needed land, an immigrant stone carver declares himself unwilling to leave the house he built with his own hands. His son, a rising politician, arrives with his fiancée to try to convince his estranged father to move out—and move on. [IMG:L]Dan Lauria, known to audiences as the dad on TV's The Wonder Years stars as the Sicilian-born stone carver Agostino. The play is an autobiographical work by William Mastrosimone, known for the award-winning play and film Extremities and the Emmy-nominated TV miniseries Into the West. If you're looking for a thought-provoking, well-acted family drama, A Stone Carver fills the bill. [IMG:L]
