"The Herd," by Rory Kinnear
November 25 - December 11
The Studio proudly presents an Actor's Equity Association Members Project Code production of the regional premiere of The Herd by Rory Kinnear. This play is a brilliant, witty, and heartfelt look at family life when it doesn’t turn out quite the way you imagined.
A domestic family drama set on Andy Griffith's birthday, The Herd is a humorous and touching look at the minutiae of living with severe mental and physical disability. Andy’s anxiety ridden mother, Carol, has arranged a small family party to celebrate Andy's 21st birthday. But, Andy and his caregiver are running late, and unexpected guests arrive, straining family dynamics and bringing to light the challenges of reconciliation, the power of shared memories and the irresistible pull of family.
“A vivid and unsentimental portrait of domestic life, flecked with wry humour” - Evening Standard
“This play warrants nothing less than a box-office stampede” - The Telegraph
"...a verbal and emotional rigor that has its own particular kick." Chicago Sun-Times
