The Chain: A Play

The Chain: A Play

Directed by: Vittorio Rossi
When family dynamics between father and sons are tested and family businesses are in jeopardy, there is no telling what damage it could cause.


PLOT : In an effort to impress his visiting brother from Italy, Tullio Testa — a working class landscape contractor — attempts to impress him by appearing as a man of leisure. He turns the business over to his younger, favourite son Massimo — ultimately shunning his other son Joe, who has worked alongside him for years. When Massimo puts their business in jeopardy, a war erupts between father and sons — unravelling their façade and forever altering the dynamics within the family.
