Co-produced by Old Castle Theatre Company of Vermont and Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey, and winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, Talley’s Folly follows the unlikely sweethearts Matt Friedman and Sally Talley. After a lifetime of believing they will never truly belong in the world around them, Matt, a Jewish immigrant, has worked up the courage to ask Sally, a Gentile, for her hand in marriage. During a moonlit night of arguing, joking, and wooing in a dilapidated Victorian boathouse, Matt and Sally reveal their secrets and consider their future in this charming and tender waltz of a love story.
