BEAU JEST Director's Notes

Beau Jest has been one of my favorite plays since I performed the role of Miriam at Silver Spring Stage years ago. The plot touches on family values, on the relationships of parents and children to one another, on the maturing of a young woman, on the way choices are made, on the complexity of love ebbing and flowing -- all in a charming, fun-filled three-act comedy. The people are real. You probably know a mother and father like Miriam and Abe, whatever their religious or ethnic roots. Joel-the-shrink could be your cousin. Your good friends might have experienced a situation similar to the Chris-Sarah-Bob one -- probably without the "rent-a-beau" complexity. James Sherman has made us face these much-ados with laughter and thought. Relax and enjoy the antics of Beau Jest.
