THE WRONG SON

The Wrong Son

THE WRONG SON takes place in 1949 and concerns Ryle, a war-time pilot turned piano player.  He and his singer girlfriend Maggie have come up with a hit song, but then one night Ryle’s drunken ex-wife Peg shows up.  A murder ensues and Ryle is on the run, beginning his typically noir struggle to escape the inescapable.  We learn what happens mostly from Ryle’s point of view including his dreams and some of his thoughts articulated by the two-person chorus.

Reviews:

“Stylish production values keep interest in the show alive. The production’s highlights are the clarity of Peter Hinton’s direction and the warmth and charm of one performance: Frank Moore as the father willing to accept the wrong son gives the show its heart”
