"An impressive cast" - The New York TimesGathered one summer in a beautiful shoreline town, three generations are drawn together by their patriarch, played by Oscar® Nominee Robert Loggia. With endearing moments of humor and uplifting spirit, HARVEST is a portrait of a family awkwardly yet delicately hanging on to what was, what now is, and to one another. A superb ensemble cast, including Tony® Winner Victoria Clark, Arye Gross, newcomer Jack Carpenter and also featuring Oscar® Nominee Barbara Barrie tugs on heartstrings and reminds us of a love that can weather all storms in this poignant yet amusing story. HARVEST brings to mind how we all come of age, in our own stumbling yet loving ways, often again and again.
