    Theater: St. Ann's Warehouse / 38 Water Street, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    While the story (adapted by screenwriter Thomas Vinterberg), the structure, and much of the language remain true to the film--a family gathers to celebrate the 60th birthday of the family partriarch--"Jarzyna's production, with its two long tables laid out at right angles, brings to mind not just Chekhov but a whole range of Shakespeare plays: Hamlet obviously, with its theme of buried family secrets, but even more specifically, Macbeth, with the sense of a ceremonial banquet thrown into disarray through the intrusion of ghosts from the past" (The Guardian).
