‘Week’ closes after weak crix response

Henley play shutters after 24 perfs

Negative notices have taken their toll on Beth Henley’s new play, “Family Week,” which opened Monday and will close Sunday after eight regular performances and 16 previews. The engagement at the Century Center for the Performing Arts marked its world premiere.

Ulu Grosbard directed the comedy-drama about a recovering drug addict (Angelina Phillips) who is joined at a rehab clinic by her mother (Rose Gregorio), sister (Carol Kane) and niece (Julia Weldon). The four actresses did double duty, also playing the roles of therapists. Ron Kastner and Jean Doumanian were the producers.

Last season, Henley’s “Impossible Marriage” was produced at the Roundabout. Her first play, “Crimes of the Heart,” won the Pulitzer Prize in 1981. She also wrote “The Miss Firecracker Contest” and “The Wake of Jamey Foster.”
