The Great Divide (1967)
Often called “the first modern American play,” it created a great furor in 1906 when contemporary critics called it a “sex play.” Lt played over 1,000 performances, was produced in London, and had at least 6 national tours. lt is an exciting, active play about the collision of two American cultures: the refined, Puritan east, and the rough, open west. It will certainly entertain you. We, and director Tom Hill, think it will surprise you!
