In the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Talleys Folly, Matt and Sally face lots of obstacles as a couple. For one thing, she lives in rural Missouri, while he calls St. Louis home. For another, her conservative Protestant family isnt happy at the idea of her marrying a Jewish man 11 years her elder. Oh, and then theres that bit about her perhaps wanting to stay single. The second play in a trilogy by Lanford Wilson, which includes Talley and Son and Fifth of July, Folly is set in 1944 and plays out in real time as the two discuss their romantic fate.
