TALLEY’S FOLLY

By Lanford Wilson
Directed by Mike Ryan

The scene is an ornate, deserted Victorian boathouse in Lebanon, Missouri, circa 1944. Matt Friedman, a Jewish immigrant now living in St. Louis, has arrived to plead his love to Sally, the daughter of the prosperous Tally 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. His attempts to overcome her defenses bring secrets to light that each of them have long held close.  The soul-baring cost of love is weighed closely in this Pulitzer Prize winning play as two wounded outcasts seek to find common ground and a chance at happiness.
