Smartly directed by Meredith McDonough in its world premiere at the Magic Theatre, “Another Way Home” examines the fault lines that lie just beneath the surface of the seemingly perfect family from New York’s Upper West Side. It’s an insightful memory play that wins us over with its freshness and wit, only to reveal unexpected depths. The playwright etches this family with tenderness but also with bracing honesty so that it’s hard not to see yourself in all of the characters on stage at one moment or another.

The Warriors are listing Durant as day-to-day after he missed the final 6:37 of Sunday’s game against Phoenix after landing awkwardly on his right ankle.

Lightwire’s productions appeal to all ages, Carney said, “We don’t really make children’s theater. We make theater for people.
