From Broadway World, April 10, 2013: Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) has just announced the full cast for the world premiere of The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin by Steven Levenson, directed by Scott Ellis. Steven Levenson was a Brown undergraduate playwright. He acted in the Playwrights Rep production of Speech & Debate in 2006 and his play: Torah! Torah! Torah! was produced by Playwrights Rep in the summer of 2007.
The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin is a funny, raw and moving world premiere about the price we pay for defaulting on those we love. Tom Durnin did the time for his white-collar crime. Now, he's determined to win back the respect he believes he deserves-even if that means ripping apart the new life his family has so carefully put together in his absence. Tom's son warily allows his father to camp out on his couch, hoping the man who let everyone down has finally turned a new page. After a lifetime of empty promises, can Tom find a place in a family that has worked so hard to move on without him?
