Welcome Home, Johnny
A New Play by Robert Clohessy
Directed by Jarel Davidow
April 9th-12th 2020
In the Castle Hill Projects of the Bronx, 1969, Robby anticipates his eldest brother Johnny’s return from Vietnam. The story follows the Moran Family, led by tough as nails father and police officer, John. In Johnny’s absence, the Morans do their best to continue life as they know it. Welcome Home, Johnny is an intimate look at life and family during an era of uncertainty and change.
