Adam Penford’s production raises timely questions about how we view charity in our society – who is deserving of it and to the tune of how much.

It’s the legendary hot summer of 1959 and while the Cold War rages and America tunes into I Love Lucy!, Captain Jack Fox, believed missing in action in the fields of France 15 years before, is about to be reunited with his family in The Hamptons.
But is this really Jack Fox? And if it isn’t, who is this man? And why are there 22 other families so intent on claiming him as their own?

Playwright Anthony Weigh updates Anouilh's riotous family drama to a long, hot Summer, on the very tip of Long Island, in the America of the late 1950's.Read more
