Hoffman directs The Long Red Road

"The Long Red Road" at Goodman Theatre

Goodman Theatre Presents World Premiere of Brett C. Leonard's The Long Red Road, February 13-March 14, 2010

***Philip Seymour Hoffman Makes His Goodman Directorial Debut***
Goodman Theatre is proud to present the world premiere of Brett C. Leonard's The Long Red Road directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, February 13-March 14, 2010 in the Goodman's 400-seat flexible Owen Bruner Theatre. Tickets are $12-$45 and are currently on sale at or by calling 312.443.3800.

In this raw, provocative world premiere, Sam attempts to drink away his past and exorcise his demons on an Indian reservation in South Dakota, where he has been trying to forget his role in a tragic accident involving his family. When a visitor from his past arrives on the reservation, Sam is forced to face his guilt and take a harrowing look at the man he has become. The Long Red Road is a searing play about the way one person's anguish can tear a family apart.
Comment:  As you may recall, Hoffman had a small Indian subplot in Next Stop, Wonderland. He may be interested in Native issues.
