Play Reading Series returns with ‘Talley’s Folly’

TNT's 2014 Play Reading Series kicks off this Saturday with a performance of Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning 'Talley's Folly.'

TNT’s 2014 Play Reading Series kicks off this Saturday with a performance of Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning Talley’s Folly.

“It’s a week late for Valentines,” admits organizer Richard Rowberry, “but if anyone has a need for more romance in their lives, this will hit the spot.”

Nelsonites may remember the script from a previous TNT production.

“We produced it 12 years ago and it’s still one of my all-time favourites — very witty, emotionally powerful, with two totally lovely characters”

The same two actors that were in TNT’s original production — Geoff Burns and Cate Baio — are back for this reading.

The play follows Matt Friedman, an accountant from St. Louis, who has arrived to plead his love to Sally Talley, the susceptible, but uncertain daughter of the family. Bookish, erudite, totally honest and delightfully funny, Matt refuses to accept Sally’s rebuffs. Charming and indomitable, he gradually overcomes her defenses.

See the play reading at Shanti Yoga Studio (237 Baker Street) on Saturday, February 22 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 at the door.
