by Dan Lauria

Starring Dan Lauria & Patty McCormack

directed by James Glossman

June 2nd – June 18th

a world premiere co-production with Great Barrington Public Theater

A thoughtful new comedy by stage and screen star Dan Lauria (‘The Wonder Years’). A comedy writer and a sophisticated poet in their seventies meet daily on a park bench to exchange wits and barbs, and wax nostalgic about old movies, all the while trying to figure out how they know – and love – each other. At least for that day.

“[McCormack & Lauria’s] chops are equally matched! The script runs the gamut of side-splitting moments to those that tug gently at your heartstrings” 

– Aisle Seat

Director James Glossman

At Shadowland, most recently directed the world premiere of his collaboration with Tom Hanks, the time-traveling adventure SAFE HOME.  Elsewhere, he co-wrote and directed the music-theatre piece Shostakovich and the Black Monk, in collaboration with the multiple-Grammy-winning Emerson String Quartet, which has performed around the world from the Tanglewood, Wolf Trap, and Ravinia Festivals to the Lotte Concert Hall in Seoul with a rotating cast including David Strathairn, Sean Astin, Jay O. Sanders, Richard Thomas, Evie Colbert, Jeff DeMunn, and Len Cariou.  His adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s Trouble Is My Business had its world premiere at Portland Stage, following a benefit workshop here (w/David Strathairn and Peter Scolari) at Shadowland.  Over three decades of collaboration with writer and journalist Jim Lehrer, Glossman adapted & directed Lehrer’s novels Kick the Can, The Special Prisoner (w/William Schallert), and Flying Crows, directed his play The Will and Bart Show; and has been developing Lehrer’s final play, the dark satire Glock.  For Shadowland, he most recently directed the American premiere of John Cleese’s new farce Bang Bang! (w/Sean Astin & Scott Shepherd) and the east coast premiere of Jeff Daniels’ Flint (w/Brendan Burke).  During lockdown, Glossman directed productions written for Zoom of Lia Romeo’s Sitting and Talking (w/Wendie Malick & Dan Lauria), Ken Weitzman’s Fire in the Garden (w/Sean Astin), and Nicky Glossman’s Portrait of a Woman in Repose (w/Paula Prentiss & Tony Shalhoub).
