War is difficult. A decorated general with multiple battles and front line experience is a good leader to follow. But each conflict is its own challenge, and although this tested general might know more of what to expect and how best to enter the fray, the winner is not necessarily the most seasoned and battle-hardened warrior. Theatre is also difficult.
Manhattan Theatre Club continues its 2018-2019 season with the New York Premiere of Long Lost, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.
Performances take place at New York City Center's Stage I.

Long Lost is a funny, unsettling, ultimately moving play about the limits of compassion and filial obligation. When troubled Billy appears out-of-the-blue in his estranged brother David’s Wall Street office, he soon tries to re-insert himself into the comfortable life David has built with his philanthropist wife and college-age son. What does Billy really want? Can he be trusted? And how much can family bonds smooth over past rifts?
