A Rose for Emily
A Rose for Emily
Adapted by Joseph Robinette. Based on William Faulkner's story.

Cast: 5m., 4w. William Faulkner's most famous short story has become a powerful play of exquisitely revealed characters and a strong sense of a time and place in American life. Miss Emily Grierson is the proud and very private daughter of a small southern town's now-deceased leading citizen. She lives alone in the mansion left to her by her father until, to the surprise of everyone, she takes up with a handsome man from the north who is in town briefly on a contracting job. They are seen going about together and then he is seen no more, nor is Miss Emily, who no longer leaves her mansion. As we discover what really happens, we come to a shocking climax that, in the hands of this Nobel Laureate, has great dramatic impact. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
