Unit Set/Multiple Settings

On a warm June afternoon in the Berkshires, siblings Adam, Teddy and Sophia prepare their family's summer house for a party and anxiously await the arrival of their father, celebrated author and publisher Solomon Weber. Not only is today his birthday, but a celebration has been planned for the release of his autobiography, which details his rise from ambitious orphan to publishing magnate and lauded author. But to what extent, Adam wonders, does his father's book betray or invent family secrets among this thoroughly artistic clan? And when an estranged member of the family arrives at the party to challenge Saul about the authorship of an earlier book, his reappearance sets in motion confrontations and shifting allegiances.
"Ms. Kazan writes lively, speakable dialogue [and] possesses an instinctive feel for mining drama from the neuroses, insecurities and obsessions of the creative classes." —NY Times. "Astounding…the themes and complexity of Zoe Kazan's debut play, ABSALOM, reveal an author whose insights into human nature have an unexpected maturity…ABSALOM has admirable moments of surprise, juicy deceit and wit, as well as a layered story that unfolds with revelations." —Louisville Courier-Journal.
