Now Playing: The Lyons Cast Interviews
The Road Theatre on Lankershim is proud to present The Lyons by Nicky Silver, a scathingly funny play about a dysfunctional family in the process of disintegration. The play opens Friday May 12. During the next several weeks we will feature the cast and creative team in our spotlight. This week it shines on veteran Road member Scott Alan Smith, director of The Lyons.
Tell our readers about directing The Lyons.
Working on The Lyons has been pure joy for me. I was excited to get a chance to direct it as I have been a fan of Nicky Silver’s plays for years. During the process I got a chance to talk to Nicky for over 90 minutes on the phone and we discussed the play in great depth and detail –as well as talking about theater folk we had in common and how to pack sensibly for an extended trip to England…We have also shared many emails where we have discussed the characters’ journeys and he has been exceptionally candid and available to our production.
