About the Play

The two-character love story opens with Matt directly addressing the audience, telling them that the play will take 97 minutes and he hopes to capture and relate his story properly in that amount of time.  This Pulitzer Prize-winning story takes place in one night (no intermission) in the lives of two unlikely sweethearts, Matt Friedman and Sally Talley, on the fourth of July in a dilapidated boathouse on the Talley farm in Missouri.

Matt Friedman: A 42-year-old Jewish accountant. Must be able to speak with a Yiddish accent.
