REVIEWS

"Euripedes, Seneca, Raine and Gilroy" - that's the geneology of the new play - New York World Journal Tribune

"A fresh facet to his talent in the present work, and a welcome one." - The Wall Street Journal

"The whole evening is a kaleidoscope, with nothing wasted...None of it is remote myth, but rather warmly, vividly compassionately alive. It expands in imagination. How complete the revelation will depend on individual qualities of imagination and concentration. For me the play cast a spell." - Chicago Tribune


That Summer - That Fall premiered at the Helen Hayes Theatre in New York in March 1967 under the direction of Ulu Grosbard.
