Stories by Tobias Wolff

Wordforword Six years after the smash hit world premiere Stories by Tobias Wolff broke all records for Word for Word, the company that turns great literature into great theatre pairs back up with the short story master for More Stories by Tobias Wolff.

Of Word for Word, Tobias Wolff says: "I wish that Word for Word would do all my stories.  Their brilliant inventiveness in performance, choreography, and staging has created a new art form, and a deeply affecting experience. 
I honestly believe that you could not find a more imaginative, energetic, and emotionally well-tuned ensemble."

"Sanity," "Down to Bone", and "Firelight"(Best American Short Stories) comprise the evening, with Wolff's typical exploration of moral ambiguity and the small, life-altering shifts that he investigates with such grace and compassion. 

From the desperate hilarity of teenage April's attempt to create stability in her disintegrating family, to the implausible possibility of a sultry interlude while keeping a parental deathwatch, to a young boy's jaunty, buoyant  search with his single mother for refuge,  "Sanity," "Down to Bone," and "Firelight"  prove once again the mastery of Tobias Wolff's life-affirming storytelling.
