Image from Vengeance is the Lord's

When crime is the family business, you always bring work home.

The Horvath family forgives their trespassers — all but one. A mother's call for mercy clashes with a father's need for retribution when their daughter's murderer comes up for parole. Sharp jokes, tough love, and foul-mouthed conversations drive this searing and darkly funny new drama, which unfolds at holiday dinners from Thanksgiving to Easter. A modern American family asks a classic moral question: what can we do when "justice" is not enough?

Contains mature themes and language.

Approximate running time: 2 hours and 5 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.

"Few playwrights are better at conveying the day-to-day rhythms of the lives of deeply flawed characters. And it couldn't feel more authentic." — New York Post
