Daniel Arts Center - Liebowitz Black Box Theater
Great Barrington Public Theater presents Mr. Fullerton, a steamy, eyebrow-raising return to the Gilded Age by way of a daring new play by Anne Undeland, a favorite local playwright-actor, and directed by Judy Braha. Playing in the intimate Liebowitz Black Box Theater, Mr. Fullerton brings together Edith Wharton, Henry James, Morton Fullerton, and Edith’s saucy Irish maid for parlor games and society foreplay from Paris to Lenox in a rich retelling of Wharton’s actual romance with a younger stateroom dandy. Mr. Fullerton is a banquet of language, poise, sex, mores, and manners that rings with literary and local history.
Approximate running time: 1 hour, 20 minutes. The performance will not have an intermission.
