About this show

On a hot Independence Day in the late 1970s, a widow puts her husband's ashes in the refrigerator for safekeeping, a handsome botanist rediscovers a long-lost variety of rose, and a young girl dreams of being Betty Grable and Marie Curie. The first play written in Wilson's celebrated Talley trilogy, Fifth of July chronicles the two-day reunion of a group of 60's radicals in their small hometown of Lebanon, MO. These friends and lovers confront the consequences of their past choices and try to reconcile the disappointments of lost dreams with renewed hope for the future. The production stars Michael Cerveris and Parker Posey.
