Allie Bateman’s wedding is Sunday. When Dinah, her precocious younger sister, returns to their parents’ home for the festivities, she brings more than anyone expected: a new boyfriend, whose hidden history resurrects passions and painful memories for the whole family. Over one emotionally charged weekend, the Batemans must acknowledge and accept loss to gain hope for regeneration. Zoe Kazan, one of New York’s most acclaimed young actors, returns to MTC for her New York playwriting debut with this world-premiere, MTC-commissioned play — an incisive and beautifully rendered portrait of a contemporary family coming together through grief and celebration.
