From the show:
In his first world premiere since the critically acclaimed Spaceman, which earned fellow company member Erin Treadway a Drama Desk Nomination For Best Solo performance, Leegrid Stevens continues to break apart themes of belief and delusion with A Peregrine Falls. Charlie’s daughter, Kailey, returns home with exciting news of a pregnancy but joy quickly turns to dread when facts emerge that paint Kailey’s story in a much darker light. The play explores the power of illusion and why sometimes it’s impossible to see what’s right in front of you.

Don't see it if Family f*&^king each other up to explain motivations is rehash. Been done better with so many other plays that winds up a drag of an evenin
See it if you enjoy beautiful writing and some of the best acting happening downtown this year.
