Featuring Tony Award-Winner Karen Ziemba (Contact) Joe Lisi (Take Me Out), James McCaffrey (Rescue Me), Jonny Orsini (The Nance), Brenda Pressley (The Lyons), Almost Home is a new play from The Directors Company, the award-winning theatre company, who brought you the acclaimed Irena’s Vow on Broadway, Murder in the First and Jack Canfora’s Jericho and Poetic License.
It’s the turbulent sixties, and a young Marine returns home to the Bronx, shaken but hopeful for the future. Met by a mother fighting to keep the family going and a father down on his luck, Johnny finds himself caught between his parents’ dreams for his future and a police captain with plans of his own. Walter Anderson’s compelling new drama about the wars fought at home asks: whose dreams must be sacrificed to protect the ones we love?
