Hugo Armstrong and Joanne Whalley lead an exceptional cast of L.A. Theatre Works regulars in this story of a dysfunctional family bravely attempting not to be dysfunctional. The play's conversational dialogue reveals a tense reunion that is gathered around a brilliant, overbearing patriarch (Armstrong) who is dying from late-stage Parkinson's disease and is about to receive a lifetime achievement award for his work in developing in vitro fertilization. Two sons, a son-in-law, and a daughter, played with passion and focus by Seamus Dever, Patrick Heusinger, Matthew Floyd Miller, and Kelly McCreary, jockey for position in a family for whom IVF has become both a legacy and a cottage industry. The result is realistic, droll, and brutal. B.P. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
