It’s November, 1983. As a hurricane batters the Washington, D.C. area, Marty Pascal brings his fiancée Lesley home to meet his family, which has been stuck in a time warp since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy twenty years earlier. Over the course of the evening, through the tumult of the incoming hurricane, the family’s secrets begin to unravel, and the fragile peace of the home begins to crack, until it finally shatters. An acidic satire about class, sex, innocence, and mental illness The House of Yes is a delightfully disturbing theatrical experience.
Subtitled “A Suburban Jacobean Play”, MacLeod’s shocking script is most famous for being a critically acclaimed indie film starring Parker Posey. Custom Made proudly presents a new look at this modern classic.
