Set against the backdrop of the AIDS crisis in New York City, Ari Brand's semi-autobiographical play introduces a family of performers wrestling with ambition, tragedy and the stories we tell about who we are. Using VHS video feeds and several Romantic-era piano works performed live, SCENES FROM CHILDHOOD spans two generations and thirty years. Alongside an ensemble cast, Ari portrays the two main characters: one based on himself and another on his father, the late concert pianist Natan Brand.
