The Shadow Box (2017 BWRA Award for Best Play)

The Shadow Box

The Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning play by Michael Cristofer

The Shadow Box made its Broadway debut on March 31, 1977. It is the winner of the 1977 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. The play was made into a film, directed by Paul Newman in 1980.

Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

With humour and grace three different families struggle with the inevitability of death, and their inability to express everything they want to. Set in a pastoral hospice, The Shadow Box examines questions not only of death and loss, but also of love, identity, and each person’s place in the world. Although the play’s subject deals with death and what it feels like to face impending death, it also celebrates the joy of living.

The Shadow Box won Best Play, with Helena Levitt winning Best Leading Actress and Dale Hayes winning Best Director in the 2017 The Broadway World Regional Awards.
