It’s the Fourth of July, 1944, and a ramshackle boathouse on the Talley family farm in rural Missouri is the site of a pas de deux between Matt and Sally, two unlikely lovers coping with a blossoming summer romance. In the play that the New York Times called “a valentine to a classic romantic ideal,” these two lost souls wonder if one enchanted evening can change the course of a life. Winner of the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Drama Critics Circle Award Best Play.
