The Voysey Inheritance

By Harley Granville-Barker

Adapted by David Mamet

Directed by James Bohnen

Featuring Artistic Associate David Darlow

Presented September 18 - November 2, 2008

Corruption. Fraud. Bankruptcy. Welcome to the Family Business.
It seems people will do anything these days to make a buck. David Mamet’s ruthlessly funny update of Granville-Barker’s 1905 play proves that’s nothing new. When do-gooder Edward Voysey learns of generations of shady dealings within the family business, he is determined to set things right. But the rest of the family is decidedly against his plan. Chicago premiere!

"Fast-paced, shrewdly cast... uncannily timely."
-Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"Raymond Fox's pitch-perfect portrayal is the sort of spellbinding performance that can carry a whole show on its back."
-Brian Nemtusak, Timeout Chicago
