I was not familiar with Lanford Wilson prior to this show, but I loved his intricate and complex writing in this script. Very well acted! The beautiful park location is ideal for this show!

Description

The sequel to Wilson’s acclaimed Talley’s Folly, which was produced by Festival Theatre in 2007. Set in rural Missouri in 1977, it revolves around the Talley family and their friends, and focuses on the disillusionment with America in the wake of an unpopular war. At once poignent and marvelously funny, Fifth of July is a compassionate portrait of a generation trying to decide whether to abandon their past or find the courage to cope with it and to begin anew. In 1978 Fifth of July was nominated for the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best new play and the Tony Award for Best Play.
