About the Play

When the large Pinto family reunites after Dad goes missing, their Goan family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets, presided over by Helen, the drugged-up, acidic matriarch of the family.

Based on August: Osage County, the Pulitzer-prize winning play that was turned into a film starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Benedict Cumberbatch, Asylum is an unflinching – and uproarious – look at the dark warrens inside a Goan Christian home. Or any home.
