The Woolgatherer
Written by: William Mastrosimone
Directed by: Neill Hartley

May 21 – June 1, 2008
Walnut Street Theatre, Studio 5
825 Walnut Street, Philadelphia
Set in South Philadelphia, Mastrosimone's debut work is about an unlikely couple of half-crazy loners looking for love in a world gone mad. Rose, a shy cashier prone to daydreaming, meets Cliff, a rough-edge trucker with a solitary life. These two lonely souls are drawn to each other despite their mutual fear of commitment. As the skeletons in their closets are revealed, they somehow manage to find comfort in each others' uniqueness.
"Hartley and his cast's instincts for stillness and silence, as well as brutally raw emotional honesty, pay off in a well-sculpted tale that goes exactly where we expect…" – Philadelphia City Paper
