Politics, secrets, addiction and a book push the bounds of a family’s unconditional love and loyalty.
It's Christmas Eve 2004 and Polly and Lyman Wyeth are fighting to keep a secret of more than 30 years. Their daughter Brooke has written a book that threatens to open old wounds, unspeakable memories and a day that they hoped might never come. A story of parents and children struggling to reconcile philosophical differences that divided thousands of American families in the 1960's and 70's.
The New York Times wrote of the five characters in it's review: "…there are five members in the cast of this ripping family drama of politics, domestic and otherwise, and you never want to take your eyes off a single one of them."
Production Dates: Fridays and Saturdays April 24 - May 9 2015
