A Mid-Summer’s Valentine Directed by David New Sponsored by Tony & Judy Licata
With compassion and humor, Lanford Wilson introduces us to two lively, lovable people who open up to each other in a no-holds-barred romantic waltz of a story.
On an enchanting moonlit night in 1944, two unlikely sweethearts reveal their poignant love story. The two bruised souls, who met the previous summer, have not seen each other for a year and have finally reunited. Matt – bookish, honest, and delightfully funny – tries to dispel Sally’s fears that her family would never approve of their marriage. With charm and wit, they face their differences while revealing secrets and finding strength in each other. A light is thrown on the soul-baring cost of love in this Pulitzer Prize-winning romantic comedy, as Matt and Sally, reawakening one another to love, discover whether or not they belong together.
“It is perhaps the simplest, the most lyrical play Wilson has written—a funny, sweet, touching and marvelously written and contrived love poem for an apple and an orange.” —New York Post.
“…dialogue fraught with the essence of the greatest drama on earth: that of two pitiful yet glorious human beings clumsily and splendidly staggering toward each other.” – John Simon on Theater: Criticism, 1974-2003
