TALLEY’S FOLLY

by: LANFORD WILSON
May 21-30, 2015
Directed by: Don Fleckser

A Victorian Folly becomes the setting for, what many call, the most beautiful love story seen on stage. Filled with comedy and wonderful dialogue, this Pulitzer Prize winning play is set during one of the most delicate times in American History; this is a production you will never forget.

“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.” Clive Barnes – New York Post
