In 1981, photographer Larry Sultan decided to turn the lens on his parents to ferret out the darker truths lurking beneath sunny home movies and his father’s proud salesman veneer. While his wife and young boys spent weekends without him, Larry interrogated the notion of manhood by interviewing his father. Though set in the recent past, this slyly poignant and theatrically inventive new play by Sharr White (The Other Place on Broadway and at the Alley; writer on Showtime’s The Affair) is both of-the-moment and timeless.
