Talley’s Folly Seeking co-habiting heterosexual couple for Hilliard Arts Council production of Lanford Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Talley’s Folly.  This way the two actors would not need to socially distance from each other.  Synopsis. The play takes place in 1944 in Lebanon, Missouri where Matt Friedman, an accountant from St. Louis, comes to plead his love to Sally Talley.  Sally’s family doesn’t approve of Matt and she refuses his proposal of marriage.  Throughout the course of the play Matt and Sally gradually find a way to come together. Character descriptions: Matt: 42 and dark, and rather large.  Warm and unhurried, he has a definite talent for mimicry.  In his voice there is still a trace of a German-Jewish accent of which he is probably unaware.   Sally: 31. Light, thin, quite attractive but in no way glamorous or glamorized.  Straightforward, rather tired.  When she gets angry, she has a pronounced Ozark accent, but when she concentrates on what she is saying, the accent becomes much less pronounced.   Auditions Sat. Oct. 16 and Sunday Oct. 17.  Contact Robin Brenneman at kenrob@columbus.rr.com to arrange an audition time.  Auditions will be held at the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center....
