Keys to the Kingdom by John Lahr
Directed by John Hancock
Monday, May 20
“Men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after,” Henry Thoreau said. Two middle-aged Yalies, whose life and careers have taken different turns, chew over old privileged times as they troll for pike. Then the Big One hits – and it’s more than a fish.
John Hancock has directed such films and TV shows as Bang the Drum Slowly, Weeds, Let’s Scare Jessica to Death, and Baby Blue Marine.
John Lahr has won a Tony Award as co-author of Elaine Stritch at Liberty; is the recipient of The National Arts Club Medal of Honor for Achievement in Theatre; and authored Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Sheridan Morley Award for Theatre Biography.
