The Open House

The Open House


Son and daughter have come home to celebrate Mother and Father's wedding anniversary, but the atmosphere is strained and the dog is nowhere to be seen. Just as they hit stalemate, things start to take an unexpected turn...

The Ustinov is delighted to unite the talents of Michael Boyd, former Artistic Director of the RSC with the multi award-winning Will Eno, one of America's leading contemporary playwrights.

Will Eno's Broadway debut play, The Realistic Joneses, was named Best Play on Braodway by USA Today, and Best American Play of 2014 by The Guardian. The Open House won the Obie Award for Playwriting, the 2014 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding PLlay and was on both TIME Magazine and Time Out New York's Top Ten Plays of 2014.

Michael Boyd returns to the Ustinov Studio after previous successes with Right Now, The Harvest and The Big Meal.
