WHO: Ken Bacon and Marin Actors' Workshop presents...
WHAT: "The Petrified Forest"
By Robert E. Sherwood
A remote diner located in the Arizona desert is the setting for Robert E. Sherwood's “The Petrified Forest,” a poignant social tale of longing, disillusionment, class struggle and gunplay.
Lofty idealism and corporate indifference are explored when a down-on-his luck writer, an idealistic waitress, a couple of wealthy tourists and other diners bare their souls and question the value of their lives after a notorious gangster arrives at the diner and takes everyone hostage.
Playwright Robert E. Sherwood, one of the original members of the Algonquin Round Table, received Pulitzer Prize for Drama honors for three of his plays, including “Idiot’s Delight.”
