Described as “a dark comedy about a dying breed”, the hit American play The Lyons by acclaimed playwright Nicky Silver received its European premiere this month at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory, where it is now running. The play stars HH clients TOM ELLIS and BEN ALDRIDGE.
The Lyons have gathered around the hospital bed of their dying father Ben. But surface compassion soon gives way to bickering, sniping and betraying each other’s secrets. This exploration of a fractured family is at once savagely funny and heart-breaking. TOM stars as Curtis Lyon, a creepy sexual inadequate who is despised by his father for being gay. BEN stars as Brian Hutchins, a brash and glib young estate agent.
The Lyons is dysfunctional family drama at its best! The play has been receiving rave reviews across the board and it will close on 16th November, so get your tickets now to make sure you don’t miss this fantastic production.
