"A FEW STOUT INDIVIDUALS bounces high off the springboard of real-life American history…the play studies the tragic yet ultimately victorious final days of Ulysses S. Grant. Unleashing his powers of cosmic wit, Guare uses this dark scenario to reflect thoughtfully upon the interdependence of memory and history…A FEW STOUT INDIVIDUALS stands among Guare's best plays. Guare's smarts, passion and creativity skyrocket to awesome heights. In this remarkable work, Guare illuminates the dusty pages of history so that we can understand our heritage in the contemporary glow of his imagination." —Star Ledger. "…unmistakably the product of Mr. Guare's exotic yet very American imagination…distinctive theatrical exuberance." —NY Times. "A FEW STOUT INDIVIDUALS is precisely the kind of good new play that you might call an everyday miracle." —Village Voice.
