A Chekhovian comedy from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lillian Hellman about the sad and funny frailties of human existence. As the summer of 1949 draws to a close, a group of middle-aged friends are gathering for their annual retreat at a genteel Southern resort. An acquaintance from the past thrusts himself into the yearly gathering, forcing them to re-examine their mundane yet seemingly idyllic existence, the opportunities they’ve lost, and the lives that have passed them by.

Loved the play, and thought the actors were all very fine. I love the theater, and would have been thrilled to sit in the audience for this fine Hellman play.
My only complaint is that there is no playbill - or cast list - available to scan before, or during the play. I'd loved to have had a list of the actors, and their roles, provided here at the page for The Autumn Garden. I knew most, but not all, of the actors' voices, and would like to have had that added bit of play-experience, of being able to check the actors by the role. The cast list is given, verbally, at the end of the production. Otherwise, a fine performance of the play.
