Unit Set/Multiple Settings

The turbulent relationship between struggling writer Milton Klonsky and his mentor, the brilliant poet Delmore Schwartz, is the basis of this engrossing drama. Warm scenes of their deep friendship alternate with vaudevillian routines and bold theatrics, ultimately painting a harrowing portrait of Schwartz's unnerving descent into madness.
"This deft two-person drama nicely captures what it's like for a writer to be inspired and intimidated at the same time…KLONSKY is not another story about the decline of a famous poet so much as an uplifting one about the evolution of an unknown writer." —NY Times. "A literate, sophisticated couple…portrays vividly the agonies and joys of the relationship…Delmore Schwartz's words lie refulgent in their lucid mystery." —Village Voice. "His text, while gliding with polished professionalism, has a subtle but glowing heart…the play successfully puts poetry centerstage." —BackStage. "Linney has succeeded remarkably in interweaving Schwartz's moving poetry with his own lines…" —nytheatrescene.com. "A roller-coaster ride…the experience was thrilling." —Star-Ledger. "Crackles with zest and wit…filled with surprises and calling for virtuoso acting." —Syracuse New York Post Standard. "KLONSKY AND SCHWARTZ is stunning theatre." —Syracuse City Eagle.
