Synopsis: Gladys, the elderly matriarch of the Green family, has run an art gallery in a small Greenwich Village hotel for many years. The management wants to replace her less than thriving gallery with a coffee shop. Always irascible but now increasingly erratic, Gladys is a cause of concern to her daughter, her son-in-law and her grandson, from whose point of view this poignant memory play is told. A wacky and heartrending look at the effect of aging and end of life choices on a family.
Kenneth Lonergan is the author several popular plays including “This Is Our Youth,” “Lobby Hero,” and wrote the screenplay for the comedy “Analyze This.” He is also the writer and director of “You Can Count on Me,” and the Oscar winning “Manchester by the Sea.” The New York Times called “The Waverly Gallery” a play that “deftly presents senility as an exaggerated state of the natural human condition…Deeply theatrical and often deeply funny.”
