The Tavern
By George M. Cohan
MAY 13 – 29, 2011
Directed by Mark Leonard
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

One of the most famous of Cohan's plays happens in a lonely tavern on a wild stormy night where a mysterious vagabond, a woman and the State Governor and his family who have been held up a short distance away gather. Several persons are suspected of the crime and the mysterious vagabond takes infinite delight in observing developments as they take place about him. When suspense reaches an almost unbearable climax, the vagabond is at last located by the keepers of a nearby Sanitarium and it is learned that he, a madman, has been responsible for the vastly amusing and complicated series of misunderstandings.

Before there was Agatha Christie, there was George M.
