In the dead of winter, Henry flies from New York to Florida to offer condolences at the funeral of a father figure he never knew. But as the booze flows at the wake, are the surviving widow and her grown daughter ready to raise a glass to the unexpected guest? Set in 2012, somewhere between the dusk of the worst days of the AIDS crisis and the dawn of marriage equality, Two Henrys is a humor-laced drama about guilt and grief, perceptions and prejudices and the urge to find family.
NYC-based playwright Jones is enjoying the success of his recent play, Alabama Story, being produced at theatres around the country. Two Henrys was a semi-finalist for the O’Neill National Play Conference and most recently was seen in workshop at the Pacific Resident Theatre in Venice, CA. Scott Alan Evans is the Executive Artistic Director of award-winning Off-Broadway’s TACT/The Actors Company Theatre. Most recently he helmed She Stoops To Conquer.
