BOOK OF DAYS

BOOK OF DAYS

ABOUT

Book of Days is the new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Lanford Wilson that makes us re-examine how we perceive the people we thought we knew best, and the threat posed by the religious right. Reminiscent of Thorton Wilder’s Our Town, Book of Days is about a small southwestern Missouri town confronted by a violent death and is forced to reconsider the world and values they thought they knew inside and out.

Book of Days is set in a small town dominated by a cheese plant, a fundamentalist church, and a community theater. When the owner of the cheese plant dies mysteriously in a hunting accident, Ruth, his bookkeeper, suspects murder. Cast as Joan of Arc in a local production of George Bernard Shaw's St. Joan, Ruth takes on the attributes of her fictional character and launches into a one-woman campaign to see justice done. In Book of Days, Lanford Wilson uses note-perfect language to create characters who are remarkable both for their comic turns and for their enormous depth.
