vulgar, egotistic junkman, Harry Brock, has come to a swanky hotel in
Washington to make crooked deals with government big-wigs. He has brought
with him the charming but dumb ex-chorus girl Billie, whose lack of social
graces embarrasses even Harry. Billie must be taught some of the amenities,
and a few basic bits of information. The young, idealistic magazine
reporter Paul Verrall, who has been investigating political skullduggery
and is interested in Brockâs activities, agrees for a salary, to educate
Billie. He finds Billie has a natural honesty and a frank streak in her,
and she begins to learn about history, politics, and what Harry really is
and what he wants.

Winner of both the 1980 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle
Award as best play of the season. The scene is the ornate, deserted Victorian
boathouse on the Talley place in Lebanon, Missouri; the time is 1944. Matt
Friedman, an accountant from St. Louis, has arrived to plead his love to Sally
Talley, the susceptible, but uncertain daughter of the family. Bookish, erudite,
totally honest and delightfully funny, Matt refuses to accept Sally's rebuffs
and her fears that her family would never approve of their marriage. Charming
and indomitable, he gradually overcomes her defenses, telling her his innermost
secrets to his loved one and, in return, learning hers as well. "...Mr. Wilson
is one of our most gifted playwrights, a dramatist who deals perceptively with
definably American themes...he introduces us to two wonderful people, humanizing
and warming them with the radiance of his abundant talent. TALLEY'S FOLLY is a
play to savor and cheer." âNY Times.
Directed by Associate Artistic Director
"It is perhaps the simplest, the most lyrical play Wilson has writtenâa funny,
sweet, touching and marvelously written and contrived love poem for an apple and
an orange." âNY Post.

In a simpler time, all across America on Sunday evenings, families could
be found gathered around their Philco radios. Emanating from what were often
the parlor centerpieces were stories that entertained the country, news that
united the nation, and, communication that kept us connected, each to each
other. It was the beginning of our nation truly stretching from sea to
shining sea, and in that sense, was perhaps the most hopeful time of all.
Now, you can return with us to that time with Sunday Night by the Philco.
On Sundays, August 10, 17, and 24, journey back to the laughter, tears,
shivers and shrieks of live radio, performed by Portland's finest stage
actors. Join them, and rediscover radio.
All performances take place at the beautiful Mt. Hood Community College
