Lanford Wilson's
Pulitzer Prize-winning
/
 
Tony Award nominated Romantic Comedy 

May 14 - June 7, 2015 

 

Following their recent success of the critically acclaimed production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Snake in the Grass, Red Thread Theatre continues its current season with the Tony Award nominated play Talley’s Folly by Lanford Wilson which will open on Thursday May 14, 2015 at 8:00pm and will run on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday’s at 8:00pm with Sunday matinees at 2:00pm until June 7, 2015. 

This romantic comedy is the story of one night (July 4, 1944) in the lives of two unlikely sweethearts, Matt Friedman and Sally Talley. Wilson received the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the work.

 

Eileen Dugan will direct our production of “this charmer filled to the brim with hope, humor and chutzpah" (New York Times).

Talley’s Folly is a valentine to the idea that there is someone for everyone.

Running time will be approximately 90 minutes. There will be no intermission.

All performances will take place at the Marie Maday Theatre which is located in Lyon's Hall on the Canisius College Campus on Main Street in Buffalo NY. 


FREE PARKING is available in the well-lit parking lot surrounding the theatre and Lyon’s Hall.


TICKET PRICES:
$25 Regular, $15 Seniors, $10 Students with valid ID.

 DISCOUNTS: Thursday evenings are Pay What You Can!



CURTAIN UP! 2015

RTT is delighted to bring you the Pulitzer and Tony award winning timeless and powerful drama -
