About The Petrified Forest
A waitress named Gabby Maple, longing for poetry and romance; disillusioned writer Alan Squier; and fugitive killer Duke Mantee sweat out a manhunt with a handful of colorful characters in an Arizona diner. This yearning tale, written in 1934, is directed by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner David Auburn (Proof).
Written by four-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert E. Sherwood, this production is a nod to Berkshire Theatre’s illustrious past. Sherwood often visited his sister and Stockbridge resident, Rosamond Sherwood, who happened to also be one of the powerhouse women who chaired Berkshire Theatre Festival.
