About Downstairs:

In Downstairs, Teddy is a bit lost and has found himself staying in his older sister Irene’s unfinished basement, which has infuriated her husband Gerry. As Irene and Teddy struggle with this less-than-ideal living arrangement, they quickly find themselves grappling with the burden of their family’s troublesome history. While trying to mend the past, the pair unearths a foreboding danger threatening to break the perilously thin bonds holding them together.

Our Downstairs Review

Full disclosure - I saw this Primary Stages production at the Cherry Lane Theatre on Tuesday the 20th and am writing the review today the 24th. I figured no one would be reading over the Thanksgiving Holiday - right? And a funny thing happened those four days - I could not stop thinking about Downstairs. That in itself was enough to make me sit up and take notice.
