Floating Light Bulb


Woody Allen

Published by Samuel French Inc

4 Male 2 Female

This play is set in a Canarsie neighborhood in 1945. Here Enid and Max Pollack grapple with each other and their unfulfilled dreams as they struggle to make ends meet. Meanwhile, their stuttering teenage son retreats from his fear of people into a world of magical illusions

"Makes it clear that [Woody Allen is] an accomplished playwright. The play is suffused with gentle laughter as well as touching insights about the damaging effects of parents on children, the effects of dreams and the incipient artist as insecure adolescent. ... Should appeal to anyone interested in good theatre" ~ WQXR
