Mr. Fullerton takes us to Paris in 1908 and brings together Edith Wharton, her dear friend Henry James, her lover Morton Fullerton and her Irish lady’s maid Posy in an eyebrow-raising retelling of Wharton’s actual mid-life romance. A literary and historical banquet of language, sex, mores and manners, Mr. Fullerton sparkles with wit while it examines class differences and the complexity of human relationship. More than anything, the play makes us fall in love — with Edith Wharton, the people in her life, and best of all, the beauty of her glorious writing.
Mr. Fullerton has been nominated for the Sally and Robert Sugarman Award for World Premiere of a NEW WORK as part of the 5th Annual Berkshire Theatre Awards.
This is the third offering in the Local Produce Readers’ Theatre series presented by The Stissing Center and Oblong Books.
