The Melville Boys PlaySynopsis

Brothers Owen and Lee Melville, who’ve set aside a weekend of time at the lake, are surprised by how meeting two sisters changes the agenda, and transforms their perspective. Winner of the Los Angeles Critics Drama-League Award, The Melville Boys is an endearingly simple play about family, love, moving forward on the journey of life and valuing those around you.
