Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning romantic comedy proves the notion that one enchanted evening can indeed change the course of a life. It's 1944, and Matt and Sally are past the age of romance. Communication has broken down within their unlikely summer relationship, and Sally's resigned to being alone yet again. She's Protestant and wealthy; he's 12 years older and Jewish. Over the course of one evening together in a dilapidated boathouse, they find the courage to reveal their most painful secrets to each other. Winner of both the 1980 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Talley's Folly is a romantic comedy of great lyrical force. Let this love story sweep you off your feet at Theatre on the Run in Arlington.
This show is recommended for ages 13 and older, and will be performed without intermission.
