The Shadow Box (1978)
One of only ten plays in the last fifty years to have won both the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for BEST PLAY in 1977. In separate cottages on hospital grounds, three terminally-ill patients and their families cope with the recognition, that they are going to die, and the realities of the lives they now live. But the play is not about death, “it thunders with life,” according to ABC-TV. It is absolutely up-lifting, brilliantly written said CBS-TV. Michael Cristofer, an American actor and playwright, may be familiar to you; he has appeared twice on ACT’s stage, both in THE CONTRACTOR and NO PLACE TO BE SOMEBODY.
