Actors Craig Bierko & Len Cariou Dive Into Their Play, "Harry Townsend's Last Stand"

A comedy with heart, "Harry Townsend's Last Stand" centers around 85-year-old Harry Townsend (Len Cariou), a widower, living alone in the lakeside home he built in Vermont. Beside his daughter, Sarah, the one happiness in his life is his son, Alan (Craig Bierko), who is finally coming home after an 18-month absence. The play tells a story of complex family dynamics, passion, humor and the shorthand of communication that we have with our loved ones.
