Adapted by Christopher Sergel. Based on the book by Sherwood Anderson.
Cast: 12m., 4w. "Everyone wants to get their story told," an Anderson character suggests, "so the terrible isolation of their lives can break." Through this play, the complex people of Anderson's small town break their isolation. The central role—that of Elizabeth Willard—has been played by Eva Marie Saint, Jean Peters and Dorothy McGuire. As a girl, Elizabeth failed in her rebellion against the limitations of her life. Her hope now is for her son to escape and, perhaps, express something for them both. Divided int. set.
