Talley's Folly, Artists of Concordia Theatre
Artists of Concordia Theatre presents:

Talley's Folly by Lanford Wison
Directed by Andrew Pederson

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1980, Talley's Folly is play about kindred spirits fumbling towards each other over the course of a single evening in Lebanon, Missouri in 1944.    Matt Friedman, a St. Louis accountant, travels to Lebanon to ask Sally to marry him.  Separated by cultures, age, and geography Matt and Sally discover that the distance between them is really no distance at all.  With great compassion and humor, Matt and Sally discover the truth about themselves, their yearnings, and the hope they place in each other.
