Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Talley’s Folly is a lyrical romance that follows the unlikely courtship of young Sally Talley and her much older Jewish suitor, Matt Friedman. Set in 1944, the play unfolds magically in a Victorian boathouse on the banks of the Missouri River. Matt arrives just at twilight to confess his love to a reluctant Sally, who believes she is no longer capable of loving, but in the play's final touching moments we see that these may be two kindred spirits.
