A heartfelt tale about parents and children from A.R. Gurney

Editor Pick

Set in the 1950s, Family Furniture is a poignant new play from A. R. Gurney about one summer in the life of an upper-class Protestant family. Starring Peter Scolari as Russell, the patriarch of the family, Carolyn McCormick as the tall, skinny and beautiful model of a mom, and Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Ismenia Mendes as their college-age children, the story finds our Buffalo-based clan in their summer home on Lake Erie. Life may seem picturesque with its gin and tonics, doubles tennis and sails on the lake, but this clan is experiencing its share of turbulence. McCormick turns a wonderful performance as Claire, and Molly Nordin who plays Betsy, Keenan-Bolger’s character’s girlfriend, is spunky in her role. A warm and tender story of a family with much simmering below the surface, this Flea production is worth investigation.
