The Waverly Gallery

FINALIST! 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

“The Waverly Gallery is a powerful and perfect opening to Shakespeare & Company's 2019...it is a challenge to convey in words the power, importance and relevance of this production...it should not be missed”—Broadway News

"This sort of acting is rare and Miller takes up the challenge...It's the kind of performance you might experience once in a lifetime."—The Berkshire Edge

"Bold and risk taking...[Annette] Miller, with nuance, comic flair, sweat equity and sizzling insight has taken on the shattered glass of Gladys Green." —Berkshire Fine Arts

Once a vibrant lawyer, Greenwich Village activist and family matriarch, Gladys Green has run a charming boutique art gallery on Waverly Place for decades, but now stands to lose its tenancy, as her world shrinks through loss of memory and hearing. Gladys's family struggles to cope with her fading faculties in this Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama. As told from her grandson's perspective, this powerful story sheds a lasting and humorous light on how our familial roles get inevitably refashioned over time, and quietly challenges us to examine how we look after each other.

Generously sponsored by Jerry and Honie Berko.
