Sam is struggling. Sam’s family doesn’t understand. But then they barely understand themselves. Now, trapped in a stuffy inpatient clinic undergoing family therapy, they must find new ways to communicate with each other.

The U.S. premiere of Ruby Thomas' The Animal Kingdom, directed by Jack Serio, is an observation of family dynamics told with wit and compassion that peels back the emotional layers of group therapy.
