Just a note to let everyone know that the Pear Avenue Theatre in Mountain View is kicking off its 10th season with Fifth of July by American playwright Lanford Wilson. The Pear is an intimate space of only 40 seats, featuring new plays by local writers as well as innovative stagings of classics and less familiar works.
Fifth of July is a play set in rural Missouri in 1977, it revolves around the Talley family and their friends, and focuses on the disillusionment with America in the wake of the Vietnam War. It premiered on Broadway in 1980 and was later produced as a made-for-television movie. This is part of the Talley Trilogy, a series of Wilson plays revolving around the Talley family of Lebanon, Missouri.
