Talley's Folly

Performance Dates

This Pulitzer Prize-winning romantic comedy is a tender and poignant valentine to unlikely love. On a moonlit night in 1944 Missouri, middle-aged Jewish accountant Matt Friedman has only one chance to win the heart of Sally Talley, a 31-year-old 'old maid' from a bigoted Protestant family.  After a lifetime of believing they'll never truly belong in the world around them, Matt and Sally reawaken one another to love, ultimately finding that they do belong--together.  A funny and heart-warming theatrical duet.

Part of Theater J's season "Around Town" while our home building is under renovation.
