Tony Award® nominee and four-time Emmy Award® winner Laura Linney (My Name Is Lucy Barton, Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes) returns to Broadway in Summer, 1976, a new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Auburn (Proof, The Columnist).
This deeply moving, insightful piece is about connection, memories, and the small moments that can change the course of our lives. Over one fateful summer, an unlikely friendship develops between Diana, a fiercely iconoclastic artist and single mom, and Alice, a free-spirited yet naive young housewife. As the Bicentennial is celebrated across the country, these two young women in Ohio navigate motherhood, ambition, and intimacy, and help each other discover their own independence. Directing is Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes).
