From Donald Margulies, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of such works as Time Stands Still and Dinner with Friends, comes a funny, unsettling, ultimately moving play about the limits of compassion and filial obligation. When troubled Billy appears out of the blue in his estranged brother David’s Wall Street office, he soon tries to reinsert himself into the comfortable life David has built with his philanthropist wife and college-age son. What does Billy really want? Can he be trusted? And how much can family bonds smooth over past rifts?
Billy / Male Identifying / Age 50’s
David’s brother. Spent 18 months in jail, and has been living here and there since he was paroled. His years of rough living hang heavily on him, though he advertises willingly that he is clean and sober, except for the occasional weed. Is he, though? Unafraid of confrontation and constantly pressing any advantage. Charming, but unpredictable and unreliable.
David / Male Identifying / Late 40’s
Billy’s brother. Has worked hard to make a comfortable life for himself and his family. Sensitive about his marriage, which has been on the rocks of late. Tries to have his guard up, especially around his brother, but ultimately believes that family deserves loyalty. Proud. Wants the trauma of his past to stay behind him. Trying hard to be conventional.
Jeremy / Male Identifying / Age 19
Home for the holidays from his first semester at Brown University. He has a good relationship with his parents, and was looking forward to spending the holidays with them. He’s no rebel, but he’s susceptible to peer pressure. Guarded and a little blunt in that adolescent way. He’s a city kid, so he’s not naive, but he’s not cynical and jaded either.
