The Last Night of Ballyhoo

By Alfred Uhry

Paperback £13.99

A bitter-sweet romantic comedy from the author of Driving Miss Daisy.

1997 Tony Award
Outer Critics Award for Best Broadway Play

The time is December 1939, when the most important thing in Lala Levy's life is the Atlanta premiere of Gone with the Wind. More urgent to her widowed mother, Boo, is the question of who will be Lala's date for the last night of Ballyhoo, the formal dance that crowns the party season for Atlanta's Jewish society.

'A simply wonderful play - a true event in theatre' Liz Smith 

Press Quotes

'Part of the triumph of The Last Night of Ballyhoo is that Uhry allows ethical dilemmas and class tensions to arise without turning his characters into stick figures or the drama into a predetermined 'issue' play. Also remarkable is Uhry's gift for creating a stage full of characters so rich they all seem like leading roles'
