Spring Quarter Backstage: Talley's Folly

About the Play

“In 1944, Matt Friedman, a St. Louis accountant, arrives in the deserted Victorian boathouse of the Talleys to plead his love to Sally, the susceptible but uncertain daughter of the family. Gradually they both awaken to the possibilities of a life together until, in the final, touching moments of Lanford Wilson’s play, it is clear that they are two kindred spirits who have truly found each other.”
