The performance is Danny DeVito's first time back on the Main Stem since his Tony-nominated performance in The Price, also a Roundabout production.

The work follows Sam, an agoraphobic who prefers to stay at home with his many belongings. Forced to clean up his house or face eviction, he has to decide what's trash and what's treasure.
