REVIEWS

"A lovely play." - The New York Post

"Ms. Thatcher's gentle play is the best kind of tribute. It's not a eulogizing staged reading of her work, but a subtle, warmly humorous drama that explores the creative process with the same surgical precision that makes Peter Shaffer's Amadeus so fascinating." - The Detroit News

"A tender, touching play." - Grand Rapids Press


Niedecker premiered at Boars Head: Michigan Public Theatre in Lansing, MI in January 1986 under the direction of Nancy Elizabeth Kammer.

AL - He is a rough outdoors man, who rode the freights before settling in Milwaukee as a building painter.
GINNY - A registered nurse. A domestic, vigorous, earth-bound lady of sixty; active in the community, apple of her husband's eye. 
MARY - She is a callow girl of eighteen at the play's beginning, having received a sheltered Catholic education.
