Father: King Solomon had the right idea about work. "Whatever thy hand findest to do," Solomon said, "do thy doggonedest."

This play remains the longest running non-musical in Broadway history--3,224 performances between 1939 and 1947. It's an utterly delightful family comedy, expertly distilled from Clarence Day's effortlessly funny pieces in The New Yorker , remembering his own family and Manhattan life near the end of the 19th century. It's warm and quirky in equal measure--rather like Father himself! It's the perfect present for your holidays, featuring Richard Ziman, Jen Taylor, Shannon Loys, Cynthia Lauren Tewes, Allen Galli, and more.

Part of the series: Endangered Species Project

Endangered Species Project  is an organization of distinguished Seattle theatre artists dedicated to presenting plays that seldom get full productions. While it is an essential duty of theatres to read and develop new work, there’s a parallel need to bring older neglected plays back to the stage. Through our simply staged readings, we lend live voices to plays that are now silent on our bookshelves.  

Founded in February of 2011, Endangered Species Project has consistently mounted monthly readings. Expanding from our core group of eleven, dozens of Seattle’s best and bravest actors have been instrumental in bringing new life to these plays. We strive to do nothing that gets between the audience and the play. We want to give full scope to those two most powerful forces in the theatre: a playwright’s ideas and the audience’s imagination.
