The Petrified Forest

The Berkshire Theatre Group is presenting The Petrified Forest  at the Fitzpatrick Main Stage through August 25. This is a rare opportunity to see this much acclaimed play that is probably best known as a film even though in 1935 the play was a hit on Broadway. Robert Sherwood is one of the United States’s outstanding playwrights who is not often produced now, even though he is a an important part of theatrical history. Many of his plays were transformed into films, but even those are not often seen.  This is an opportunity for an entertaining night in the theatre as well as the chance to see a landmark in play writing directed by David Auburn who is also a prize winning playwright.
