Photo Coverage: Southern Comforts Opening Night

Kathleen Clark's Southern Comforts, co-starring Tony-nominee Penny Fuller (Applause, The Dinner Party) and Larry Keith (Caroline, or Change) runs from September 19th through October 29th at Primary Stages.

"Some people need continuous change in order to feel vital and alive. Others are terrified of unsettling the peace that they have established. Two-time O'Neill Playwright's Conference participant Kathleen Clark uses her words to detail this tour-de-force journey of a widow and widower who meet later in life and find a way into each other's hearts. Southern Comforts is a beautiful exploration of the intimate workings of all relationships," state Primary Stages notes on the play, which was a hit in its Florida premiere.

The production is directed by Tony Award-winning actress Judith Ivey (Follies, Hurlyburly).
