Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.Originally Produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Stacey Mindich, Jerry FrankelGutterman Chernoff, Hunter Arnold, Ken Davenport, Carl Daikeler, Michael DeSantis,Aaron Priest, Libby Adler Mages/Mari Glick Stuart, Scott M.

Set in the Bronx NY, this iconic play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Shanley collides us with two of society’s beautiful, yet dysfunctional city misfits. After a chance encounter in a forgotten bar, their defenses dissolve and a spontaneous night of heart thumping confession, love and chaos unfolds. With no easy way out, both are forced to dive deep in order to find a forgiveness that offers the rare chance of a more hopeful future. This is an explosive, deeply affecting play exploring the issues of personal alienation and the redemptive power of love.
