Lanford Wilsons beautiful and funny Pulitzer Prize winning 1980 play introduces us to Matt Friedman and Sally Talley, who come together, for better or for worse, in a gazebo on a river bank in Missouri in 1944. The New York Times called the play a valentine to a classic romantic ideal: two lost souls finding in each other a respite from loneliness.
