By Adam Siegel

The Cast...

Will Martin Rothberg, a famous illustrator and writer of children’s books, ever be able to escape his past? Martin has rarely seen his son since walking out on his family more than forty years ago. His estranged son appears at his father’s doorstep, asking for a seemingly innocent favor. Martin’s response sets in motion a dramatic chain of events that exposes the family’s betrayals and secrets as it struggles to come to terms with its past.

ADAM SIEGEL studied playwriting with Alvin Eng at the Gotham Writer’s Workshop in New York. He had a staged reading of his previous play, Color Blind, with First Stage in Los Angeles. Adam is Editorial Direrctor of Bearport Publishing, an award winning children’s publisher. The Legacy was chosen as a finalist in the new play festival in South Carolina’s Centre Stage.

This event is made possible (in part) with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered through the Twin Counties Cultural Fund in Columbia County by the Columbia County Council on the Arts.
