Book of Days

By Lanford Wilson

Directed by Greg Leaming

Acclaimed by Frank Rich as "a writer who illuminates the deepest dramas of American life with poetry and compassion," Lanford Wilson is one of the most esteemed contemporary American playwrights of our time. BOOK OF DAYS won the Best Play Award from the American Theater Critics Association in 1999. The play is set in a small town dominated by a cheese plant, a fundamentalist church, and a community theater. When the owner of the cheese plant dies mysteriously in a hunting accident, Ruth, his bookkeeper, suspects murder. Cast as Joan of Arc in a local production of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan, Ruth takes on the attributes of her fictional character and launches into a one-woman campaign to see justice done."Book of Days is lively storytelling by one of our best playwrights." — Lawrence DeVine, Detroit Free Press.
