Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Dinklage, Cynthia Nixon Celebrate Opening Night of David Rabe's Sticks and Bones
In addition to Chamberlain ("The Thorn Birds," "Dr. Kildare" and My Fair Lady), Hunter ("The Piano") and Pullman (The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?), the cast includes Nadia Gan (Golden Child), Morocco Omari (A Time to Kill), Ben Schnetzer ("Pride") and Raviv Ullman (Russian Transport).
The New Group bills Sticks and Bones as "a savage and savagely comic portrait of an average American family pulled apart by the return of a son from the Vietnam War. Ozzie and his wife Harriet are overjoyed to see their eldest son David again, but the furies that haunt David begin to overwhelm them and their happy-go-lucky younger son Rick, forcing Ozzie to make a stand for the values he can’t bear to let go. This production features Chamberlain as Father Donald, Gan as Zung, Hunter as Harriet, Omari as Sergeant Major, Pullman as Ozzie, Schnetzer as David and Ullman as Rick."
Sticks and Bones has set design by Derek McLane, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design and original music by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen and projection and video design by Olivia Sebesky.
Rabe’s other plays include Streamers, The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel and Boom Boom Room.
