Dawn Keeler's The House of Mirth is an adaptation of Edith Wharton's classic novel. This moving play vividly brings to the stage Lily Bart's flamboyant progress through the glorious whirl of New York's high society, circa 1905, and her tragic fall. The satirical love story is staged as a series of flashbacks over her coffin. Faithful to Edith Wharton's distinct style of dialogue, this dramatic adaptation opened to acclaim in London.
Dead Writers Theatre Collective's production opened on August 28 at Stage 773.
