Mr. FULLERTON, BETWEEN THE SHEETS

by Anne Undeland

Directed by JUDY BRAHAº

Celebrated novelist Edith Wharton (House of Mirth, The Age of Innocence, Ethan Frome) has just outsold every other writer at the turn of the century, when she falls for the handsome charms of Morton Fullerton, fellow-writer, bon-vivant and Don Juan. Wharton’s dinner parties are the talk of society, and her maid, Posy, will fill you in on all the details. Based on recently-discovered diaries, Mr Fullerton, Between the Sheets reveals the surprising passion of Wharton’s mid-life love affair and sexual discovery in early 20th Century Paris.

The unbridled passion of Mr Fullerton, Between the Sheets runs July 1 to July 24, written by Massachusetts Playwright Anne Undeland, and directed by Judy Brahaº (last at GSC directing To Kill A Mockingbird). Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 pm indoors at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main Street, Gloucester MA.
