Literary lion Saul Weber gathers his “fraying” family at their vacation home in the Berkshires to celebrate the release of his memoir. His children Teddy and Sophia, who are novelists, along with son Adam, an editor, share the celebration with Saul’s protégé , “virtual” son, and uninvited guest, Cole. Storm clouds of dissension and resentment carried along by their intriguing tangle of relationships threatens to dampen the festivities. As a side note, Author Zoe Kazan is the granddaughter of triple Academy Award winner Elia Kazan who was one of the founders of the Actors Studio in New York. This was her first play and it was produced at the Humana Festival of New American Plays which is supported by the Humana Foundation. This annual festival is now in its 33rd year and is the country’s leading producer of new works. FYI: Absalom was the name of King David’s third and favorite son who rebelled against his father.
