The tale of one family's journey through humor and heartache, separation and self-discovery, Marvin's Room examines the ties that bind families together... whether they like it or not.

Good-hearted Bessie has been taking care of her ailing father for twenty years, but now she's the one who's sick, and she must reconcile with her estranged sister, Lee. A remarkably humorous and tender play, this critically acclaimed family drama was dubbed by The New York Times as "one of the funniest plays of the year, as well as one of the wisest and most moving.
