Talley’s Folly

Talley’s Folly

Oil Lamp Theater

Enjoy a romantic evening under the stars by watching the Pulitzer-winning romantic comedy Talley’s Folly by Lanford Wilson, “one of our most gifted playwrights” and “…a valentine to a classic romantic ideal: two lost souls finding each other a respite from loneliness” (The New York Times).

Towards the end of World War II and after a year of writing love letters, Matt Friedman, a bookish, totally honest, and delightfully funny accountant and Jewish immigrant, returns to Lebanon, Missouri, to ask Sally to marry him. Sally, a 31-year-old nurse, is nothing like her conservative Protestant family and neighbors who would never approve of their marriage and is reluctant to put her trust in a future with Matt. After years of giving up on love, the two begin to imagine the possibilities of having a life together.

Don’t miss this tribute to love, loneliness, and the complexities of human connection that the New York Post says is “sweet, touching, and marvelously written.”

The performance is 100 minutes long without an intermission.

Please note that all parties will be seated in groups of two for social distancing.
