TONY NOMINATION — BEST PLAY
In the attic of a condemned Manhattan brownstone, two long-estranged brothers meet to dispose of their deceased parents’ property. Victor is a policeman who sacrificed his education to care for their invalid father who never recovered from the Wall Street Crash; Walter is a successful surgeon who turned his back on his family to concentrate on medicine and personal success. The brothers’ confrontation escalates as they negotiate the sale of the family’s belongings with a secondhand furniture dealer. Ultimately, they both come to realize the price that each has paid for the decisions they made decades ago.
