“I am happy to be able to provide a safe environment for cast, crew, and patrons. I am thrilled to have a way to keep my staff employed For the staff and our artists to be able to work while we are still being responsible and keeping everyone safe feels like a good thing…” Portland Stage’s Executive/Artistic Director Anita Stewart enthuses about the company’s bold new project: producing live professional theatre in the midst of a pandemic! From October 29-November 15, Portland Stage is presenting Lanford Wilson’s two-character play, TALLEY’S FOLLY, at their Forest Avenue theatre venue. Stewart’s company is among a very few nationally to receive approval from Actors Equity Association to produce a live performance indoors with an audience in attendance. The permission comes with a long – even daunting and costly - list of safety protocols, rules and regulations, that Portland Stage has been negotiating, planning, and implementing since the pandemic shuttered theatres across the globe.

by BWW News Desk - Nov 14, 2018
Talley's Folly opens in a 1944 deserted Victorian boathouse on the Talley place in Lebanon, Missouri, where Matt Friedman, an accountant from St. Louis, has arrived to plead his love to Sally Talley, the susceptible but uncertain daughter of the family. Bookish, erudite, totally honest, and delightfully funny, Matt refuses to accept Sally's rebuffs and her fears that her family would never approve of their marriage. Charming and indomitable, he gradually overcomes her defenses, telling his innermost secrets to his loved one and, in return, learning hers as well. Gradually it is clear that they are two kindred spirits who have truly found each other-two 'lame ducks' who, in their union, will find a wholeness rare in human relationships.
