Lanford Wilson: Collected Works, Vol. 3: The Talley Trilogy by Lanford Wilson
The fourth volume of Smith and Kraus' publication of the complete works of playwright Lanford Wilson. The plays in this volume include Fifth of July, Talley's Folly (the winner of the 1980 Pulitzer Prize) and Talley and Son. This collection will include introductory notes by the playwright, original cast and production information. From the New York Times: One of the rewards of the plays in the unfolding Talley Cycle is our knowledge of the interrelated, reflected worlds. When a character opens the door in Talley & Son, we hear the sound of crickets and dance music--and we remember that as a counterpoint to the bickering in the main house, Sally (in Talley's Folly) is down at the boathouse affirming her love for Matt Friedman. Turn the set around and walk through a Wilson time warp and we would see the family years later in the marvelous 5th of July.
