ALL TOGETHER AGAIN by Philip Middleton Williams

£5.00

SEQUEL TO ‘ALL TOGETHER NOW’

Ten years after the events in “All Together Now,” Paul and Adam welcome the family back: their son Fox and his fiancée, Nancy; Paul’s parents, Jim and Dorothy; and Fox’s mother, Julie. It’s a big occasion: it’s Paul’s fiftieth birthday and Fox and Nancy’s engagement party. But there are other things going on that threaten the celebrations, and it’s going to be a long weekend in more ways than one.

REVIEWS

RECOMMENDATION FROM NEW PLAY EXCHANGE

One of the things I love most about Williams’ work is his distinctive voice; his explorations of the WASP world of the 21st century may bear the subtle influences of Lanford Wilson and A.R. Gurney, but the voice and the work are distinctly his own: warmer, less brittle, but just as potent. Reading “All Together Again,” a sequel to his earlier “All Together Now,” was a welcome visit with dear friends. Dear, dysfunctional, frustrating, and beloved friends one sticks with because they are, and always will be, a part of your life. I’m looking forward to part three! – Doug DeVita.
