Final Follies
three one-act plays by A.R. Gurney
directed by David Saint

Join us as we bid farewell to a beloved member of the Primary Stages family and one of the most prolific playwrights of the 20th century with Final Follies, a uniquely curated selection of three one-act plays by master writer A.R. GURNEY. 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.

Running time: 2 hours, including intermission
