When it’s revealed that the middle son, a Jewish studies professor, is at work on a book that is both dedicated to his Jewish WWII veteran father and argues an incendiary point about American Jews, Israel, and the Holocaust, familial responsibility quickly resorts to familial resentment.The production will feature set design by Derek McLane, costumes by Jess Goldstein and lighting design by Kenneth Posner.
