A Staged Reading of BEGGARS IN THE HOUSE OF PLENTY by John Patrick Shanley
In his most autobiographical work to date, John Patrick Shanley takes on the demons and angels of the past that are never quite put to rest because they are family. Fast-paced, furious and unrelenting, this highly stylized play explores the myths and reality of an Irish-American family at war with itself. "crackles with the energy of artists who are going placesa theatrical event not likely to recur anytime soonIn a breathless 90 minutes, 40 topsy-turvy years of family life flood across the stage." NY Times. "Painfully funnya memory play that is like Eugene O'Neill as seen through the eyes of a Tennessee Williams influenced by Eugene Ionesco." NY Post. "funny and profoundly painful at the same timea play to be seen more than once." Chelsea Journal.
