Talley's Folly (2000)
Winner of a Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Talley’s Folly is a funny, wise, tender, and sparkling romance about two lost souls struggling for a way to find each other.

Matt Friedman has one night to woo back the woman of his dreams, his romantic paramour from the summer before. When he unexpectedly shows up in her small Missouri town, Sally is forced to confront her family‘s looming disapproval as well as her own conventional small-town morality. The unlikely duo spends a remarkable evening in a broken-down boathouse, taking tentative steps toward a romantic waltz of mutual understanding. Filled with humor and compassion, Talley's Folly unfolds like a cherished valentine, brimming with perseverance, hope, and true love.

One of Seattle's favorite actors, Michael Winters, returns in the role of Matt Friedman, adding this to his long list of shows that have dazzled local audiences, including Shadowlands, Lonely Planet, Man of the Moment, The Cider House Rules, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
