The First Man archiveA highly autobiographical work, this is a tale of male pride, family jealousy and maternal longing from one of America's greatest playwrights. Following the tragic death of their two young daughters, Martha and Curtis Jayson have made a pact to never have any more children. For ten years they have thrown themselves into anthropological fieldtrips around the world, but having finally returned home to Connecticut, they find themselves suffocated by provincial life and the small-town nature of the Jayson family. On the eve of Martha's 39th birthday, as she longs for another child, Curtis plans to embark on their most ambitious expedition yet: an arduous five year journey to Outer Mongolia in the search for the origin of man known as 'The Missing Link'.
