Talley's Folly; April 12-28, 2013 PDF Print E-mail

by Lanford Wilson
On stage April 12-28, 2013
Directed by Michael Ross

Winner of both the 1980 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award as best play of the season. Part of a cycle of plays begun with Fifth of July, TALLEY'S FOLLY deals with the courtship of the young Sally Talley and her Jewish suitor, Matt Friedman.

"…Mr. Wilson is one of our most gifted playwrights, a dramatist who deals perceptively with definably American themes…he introduces us to two wonderful people, humanizing and warming them with the radiance of his abundant talent. TALLEY'S FOLLY is a play to savor and cheer." —NY Times.

"It is perhaps the simplest, the most lyrical play Wilson has written—a funny, sweet, touching and marvelously written and contrived love poem for an apple and an orange." —NY Post.
