Downstairs was written by Theresa Rebeck, one of the country’s most acclaimed and widely-produced playwrights.

According to Actors-Express.com:
"Irene is content, slow to anger and quick to forgive -- that is, until her brother Teddy comes to live in her basement. She must split her loyalty between her controlling, volatile husband and the unstable kid brother who needs her. When Teddy tries to convince Irene to stand up to her husband once and for all, demons from the past emerge to peel back layers of dark family secrets long buried but now pushing this uneasy family to the brink. From the writer of AE hits Seminar and Mauritius comes a Hitchcockian thriller about casting out your demons and mending the past." 

According to TheatreMania.com:
"As Irene and Teddy struggle with this less-than-ideal living arrangement, they quickly find themselves grappling with the burden of their family's troublesome history. While trying to mend the past, the pair unearth a foreboding danger threatening to break the perilously thin bonds holding them together."
