Synopsis: Think you have the answers when it comes to truth and justice? Think again. After the Revolution, for which Amy Herzog won the New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award throws one idealistic woman’s beliefs into chaos when her inspiration is rocked by a revelation. This resonant, candid look at the legacy of American political history questions what is right and what is true–and are the two always mutually inclusive?

Vera:
white, female, 82, stepmother to Ben and Leo – losing her hearing but tough as nails, the family matriarch and a staunch defender of her ex-husband – quite funny and at times a bit of a reactionary to the rest of the family’s hyper-liberal worldview

[ Audition Side ]

Morty:
white, male, 50+ to play 76 years old – a rich donor to Emma’s fund – an aging radical — very warm, avuncular – funny and tender

[ Audition Side ]

Jess:
white, female, 28 years old, Ben’s older daughter -has been the troubled one in the family — in and out of rehab – but is on the mend and, as the oft-neglected, overshadowed one — offers the family hard-won wisdom and insight
