The constant shifting and re-definition of the American family is at the core of THE LIGHTNING FIELD's story. In a world where marriage and relationships no longer mean what they did a generation ago, the play explores the new American family. How did we get here? With the looming possibility of a marriage proposal, a gay New York couple Sam and Andy make a pilgrimage to Walter De Maria¹s world famous art installation, The Lightning Field. When they realize that their relationship mirrors that of their divorced parents (who are along for the trip), the resulting storm is an explosion of startling and raw emotions.
