Description

Following the success of last season’s The Cockail Hour, Theater Breaking Through Barriers presents another comedy by the terrific A.R. Gurney. In The Middle Ages, the focus is on family. Set in one room – the trophy room of a men’s club – from just after World War II through the late 1970’s, the play illustrates the conflict between long-standing traditions and the pressure for change. Son Barney needs to break free, but his father Charles, the president of the men’s club, locks him in the trophy room when he misbehaves. On one such occasion, he meets the shy Eleanor, falls in love, and spends the next 30 years trying to win her over. Meanwhile, her mother, a social climber hungry for stability, strives to break into this rapidly failing world.
