A uniquely curated selection of three one-act plays by celebrated playwright A.R. Gurney. More…
The plays specifically chosen for this special engagement include: "The Love Course," an observation of the culminating meeting of an undergraduate romantic literature course, co-taught by two of academia’s most eccentric professors; "The Rape of Bunny Stuntz," an enigmatic story of an overburdened woman anxiously trying to keep her personal life from the throes of chaos while leading a rowdy community meeting; and the titular "Final Follies," the last chapter in Gurney’s oeuvre of short plays examining WASP life in America, about a forlorn Manhattanite searching for the key to adulthood in the most truly, and literally, adult place imaginable.
