Terry Kinney to direct Lanford Wilson's "Fifth of July"

AUGUST 11 – 22, 2010

Williamstown, MA (3/11/2010) – Williamstown Theatre Festival (Nicholas Martin, Artistic Director) announced today that Terry Kinney (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest; reasons to be pretty) will direct a production of Lanford Wilson’s modern classic Fifth of July, which will play the WTF Main Stage from August 11 – 22, 2010. A co-production with Bay Street Theatre, this gentle comic drama from Wilson's beloved Talley Trilogy will be the final Main Stage production of the season.

In Fifth of July, as friends and family gather to remember a lost loved one, a group of thirty-something prodigals from the rebellious post-Vietnam generation return to their rural Missouri home, finding themselves older and wiser, but devoid of dreams. Long-buried rivalries and burning secrets reignite on a late summer evening as this motley tribe struggles to adapt to the changes wrought in their lives.

One additional Main Stage production and one additional Nikos Stage production, as well as performance dates, casting and full creative teams for the Williamstown Theatre Festival 2010 Season will be announced at a later date.
