A. R. Gurney ’52 has a play, Children, on the boards at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

“It’s always a special pleasure for me to come back (to Williamstown),” Gurney said. “Williams was where I first discovered I wanted to be a playwright. (Stephen) Sondheim was two years ahead of me, and when he left the mantle fell on my puny shoulders. I couldn’t write a note of music, but I found people who could.”

More here on him and on his work.
