From renowned playwright Theresa Rebeck comes Downstairs, a tense and darkly comic story about a troubled but caring relationship between siblings Teddy and Irene. The former is crashing in the latter's basement in a house purchased with money inherited by their parents; Teddy is bright and kind but struggles to keep his mouth shut and sometimes has trouble separating fantasy and paranoia from his reality. The story, which takes place entirely in the house's basement, "confronts family secrets, regrets, and the threat of madness in the search for the good life." City Theatre's production, directed by Marc Masterson, stars Martin Giles and Helena Routi in the leads.
