Palm Beach Dramaworks
Pulitzer Prize-Winning
Talley’s Folly
Thirteenth Season Begins October 12
at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre

Lanford Wilson’s romantic comedy, Talley’s Folly, will launch Palm Beach Dramaworks’ 2012-13 season on Friday, October 12 (8PM) at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre (201 Clematis Street). The production will play a strictly limited engagement through November 11, with specially priced preview performances slated for October 10 and 11. For twelve years, West Palm Beach’s only professional, multi-award-winning resident theatre has brought to the Palm Beaches a distinguished roster of plays under the guidance of Producing/Artistic Director William Hayes.

Talley’s Folly, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Lanford Wilson, follows the unlikely sweethearts, Matt Friedman and SallyTalley, as they once and for all settle their feelings for each other and grab their last chance at love. Set in 1944 in Lebanon, Missouri, Talley’s Folly is part of the trilogy of Talley plays that also includes Fifth of July and Talley & Son.

Resident Director J. Barry Lewis will direct the production, which features Erin Joy Schmidt and Brian Wallace. Set design is by Michael Amico, costume design by Brian O’Keefe, lighting design by Ron Burns, and sound design by Matt Corey.

Pulitzer Prize-winner Lanford Wilson was one of the most renowned American playwrights of the late 20th century. He had a penchant for characters who were downtrodden or on the fringes of society, and through them explored big and small themes of love and loss. A co-founder of Off-Broadway’s celebrated Circle Repertory Company, Wilson initially gained recognition Off-Off-Broadway, and quickly became a regular presence on Broadway. Among his other heralded, widely performed works are Balm in Gilead, The Hot l Baltimore, and Burn This.

Palm Beach Dramaworks’ season will continue with A Delicate Balance by Edward Albee (December 7 – January 6), A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry (February 1 – March 3), Exit the King by Eugene Ionesco (March 29 – April 28), and Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel (May 24 – June 16).

Palm Beach Dramaworks is a non-profit, professional theatre and is a member of the Theatre Communications Group, the South Florida Theatre League, Southeastern Theatre Conference, Florida Professional Theatres Association, Florida Theatre Conference, and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council.
