Tullio and his brother have not spoken for over twenty years due to a dispute over land inheritance in Italy. To create the appearance of a man of leisure, Tullio turns the business over to his sons, putting Massimo, the younger, educated, favourite son in charge. Joe, who has worked alongside his father in the dirt, is shunned. Massimo makes a fatal business error which puts the family company in jeopardy. The whole thing explodes in a family war between father and sons that wrecks not only the family garden, but forever changes the dynamics within the family.

THE CHAIN play was a critically acclaimed box office smash thirty years ago and again in 2019.
