Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a building slated for imminent demolition, two brothers, long estranged, reunite to sell off their family's possessions. In short time the transaction draws in one man's wife and an ancient but still wily furniture dealer. And a crowded attic becomes the setting for an acrid, funny, and moving inquest into the wounds of family, the allure of the disposable, and the nature of human failure.

Synopsis:

Years after an angry breakup, Victor and Walter Franz are reunited by the death of their father. As they sort through his possessions in an old brownstone attic, the memories evoked by his belongings stir up old hostilities. The Price was nominated for two Tony Awards, including best play.
