ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS
Starring Mark Ruffalo, Tony Shaloub, Jessica Hecht, and Danny DeVito
Directed by Terry Kinney
Decades ago, Victor Franz gave up his education for a stable but unfulfilling career in law enforcement. Now on the verge of retirement, he’s returned to his childhood home to sell off the last of his once-wealthy family’s valuables. His wife hopes the profits will give them a new start. But Victor insists that some sacrifices can never be unmade… until he encounters a 90-year-old furniture dealer whose vivacity makes him rethink what is still possible. When his estranged brother arrives on the scene with a surprising set of regrets and accusations, Victor must decide whether he can finally make peace with the past—while there’s time left to have a future.
