American Playwright Sharr White Adapted The Play From Larry Sultan's 1992 Work
White adapted this work from Larry Sultan's 1992 autobiographical photo memoir of the same name in 2015. The show is directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher.
Larry Sultan was an well-known American photographer from the San Fernando Valley in California Sultan taught photography at the San Francisco Art Institute and the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and wrote many books and also produced the autobiographical photo memoir that this show is based on.

What’s Pictures From Home Like?
This show tracks a mother, father, and son (Larry Sultan) who photographs their lives as they journey from Brooklyn to the San Fernando Valley, where they settle in a new life.
Larry Sultan's obsession with photographing his own parents complicates his relationship with them, but ultimately becomes an allegory about the failed American dream, although falsely representing his parents in this drama.
The piece was previously developed by New York Stage and Film in 2019 with director Danielle Tool, and received a developmental reading at Houston's Alley Theatre in 2020 directed by Rob Melrose.
Is Pictures From Home Good for Kids?
The show is recommended for children older than 16 years of age
