What Is the Story of Talley’s Folly?
Set at the end of World War II, Talley’s Folly tells the story of a Jewish accountant named Matt Friedman who shows up unannounced at the Missouri home Sally Talley, with whom he shared a summer romance. Matt is determined to rekindle his relationship with Sally, who resists her heart because of her family’s opinion and her own deep secret.


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"[Lanford Wilson's] dialogue is full of snap and humor. And this production has Paulson and Burstein to deliver his words, both of them in such fine control of their faculties as actors that their interplay is almost dancelike..."

Entertainment Weekly

Adam Markovitz

"...Danny Burstein and Sarah Paulson infuse this gossamer two-character play with a warm, slightly spiky humanity that breathes vital life..."

The New York Times

Charles Isherwood

"It would be a folly to stay home and miss this lovely rendition."
