The Fourposter

The Fourposter
Jan de Hartog

The Tony Award Winning Play of 1952. Best Play! Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy starred on Broadway in this moving chronicle of a husband and wife from their wedding night in 1890 until they leave the house that has been their home, 35 years later. They fret and quarrel, laugh, cry, and make love in the same room in which they began their married life. And standing throughout the evening is the old fourposter, silent witness to it all. "The best comedy of the season."

The Miracle Worker

The Miracle Worker
William Gibson

Tony Award Winner 1960 - Best Play! Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic story tells the tale of Annie Sullivan and her student - blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word.

Daddy's Dyin', Who's Got the Will?

Daddy's Dyin', Who's Got the Will?
Del Shores

Set in a small Texas town in anytime, U.S.A., Daddy's Dyin' concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically as well as mentally disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit. A masterfully written and hysterically funny comedy.
