AS REAPER IN SUMMER GRAIN BY KEITH BYRON KIRK

Director: Josh Hecht

With deep poignancy, this tragic play follows the events leading up to the brutal murders of Frank Lloyd Wright’s mistress, Mamah Cheney, her family, and household by the caretaker Julian Carlton. Julian and his wife Gertrude have worked their way into positions of respect as valet and cook respectively. But the insults of racism and class discrimination that have followed them from Barbados to America inevitably lead to a violent explosion. Based on the real events that took place at Taliesin, Wrights experimental home in the Midwest.

6:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 19, 2005, Martin E. Segal Theatre
