ROSE AND WALSH Comes to Sierra Madre Playhouse
The next play in Sierra Madre Playhouse's Off the Page series of staged readings will be Rose and Walsh. Rose and Walsh follows two great literary figures and the depth and consequences of their enduring love. At a beautiful beach house on the tip of Long Island, Rose, a celebrated but near penniless author receives nightly visits from Walsh, the love of her life and a famous writer himself. Now Walsh must go away forever, but not before securing Rose's financial future with an extraordinary proposal that promises to change everything.
Rose and Walsh was the final play from Neil Simon (1927-2018), the most commercially successful playwright in the history of the American theatre. The play premiered at The Geffen Playhouse in 2003 and moved off-Broadway that same year, where it was retitled Rose's Dilemma.
