When is it wrong to love someone? Is love the highest ideal, or are kindness and duty to one another even greater than love? These are the questions asked by Edith Wharton in her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Set in New York in the Gilded Age, The Age of Innocence is both ravishingly romantic and heartbreakingly unsentimental. Adapted from Wharton's novel by Oscar and Tony Award nominee Douglas McGrath (Emma), this play is directed by Tony winner Doug Hughes (The Father).
