Public Space One, 120 N. Dubuque St., Iowa City (in the basement of the Wesley Center). $13 adults, $10 students/seniors. November 17 is our Pay What You Can Night In an old and slightly seedy house in North London there lives a family of men: Max, the aging, crude patriarch, his ineffectual brother Sam and two of Max’s three sons, both unmarried- Lenny, a small-time pimp and Joey, who dreams of success as a boxer. Into this sinister abode comes the eldest son Teddy, now a successful professor of philosophy in America. After six years abroad, Teddy brings his wife Ruth, to meet the family for the first time.

WINNER! 1967 Tony Award for Best Play Cast: Teddy – Ted Negus Lenny – Grant Freeman Max – Stephen Ivester Joey – Colin Mattox Sam – Chuck Dufano Ruth – Jessica...
