Why See The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin?

The Roundabout production makes its way to Michigan

First premiering Off-Broadway in 2013, Steven Levenson's acclaimed play makes its first engagement in Michigan as part of the 2017 season at Meadow Brook Theatre. A moving and griping tale of forgiveness and starting over in life, we follow a man who leaves prison after a lengthy spell for committing financial fraud, only to find that his family have moved on without him.

Desperate to make it up to them, he negotiates an uneasy truce with his adult son, and sets about righting his wrongs and mending the broken promises. However, will he be able to mend the fences and get his family to trust him again? Or is he doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past? This is arguably a follow-up play to Levenson's The Language of Trees in 2008 that examines the fall-out of another absent father, albeit a contractor who heads out to work in war-torn Iraq.
