Talley's Folly

Performance Dates

Lanford Wilson's tale of unexpected love that beautifully unfolds in real time, Talley's Folly gives new meaning to the term "made for each other".  At a dilapidated boathouse in Lebanon, MS, in 1944, we share in the romance of Matt Friedman and Sally Talley  two people who couldn't seem more incompatible, as they reveal their most private selves and in the process, find their way to each other. Winner of the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
