The Long Goodbye

Monticello is a magical town where miracles can and do happen. The Long Goodbye is about one of those miracles. Soon to be a Christmas classic, The Long Goodbye, is a story of love, of hope, and of having to let go. For Mrs. Pet, disbelief is the easiest way to deal with the death of her daughter Amy. For Clarence, Mrs. Pet's husband, and Terry, their son-in-law, time is the best medicine. Mrs. Pet lives alone, having thrown Clarence out for acknowledging Amy's death. Clarence, a local barber, now lives across the street with Terry, a successful lawyer who hasn't been able to resume his practice since his wife's death. After two years of drifting apart, they have a chance to come together as a family when an angelic man, Faith, in a 1955 Chevy brings Jodie, a young lady looking for an old family friend to Monticello and into their lives. It's going to take a Christmas miracle to help Mrs. Pet find the courage to finally say goodbye and face her new life.

The Long Goodbye, a new play written by local author, columnist and playwright Anthony Lamarr White, will have simultaneous world premiere productions at the Monticello Opera House and in Atlanta by the New African Grove Theatre Company. The Monticello Opera House’s production, a collaboration with FAMU Essential Theatre, will be directed by FAMU Theatre Assistant Professor Evelyn Tyler. The holiday dramedy, set in Monticello, was chosen for the 2017 National Black Theatre Festival Readers Theatre of New Works. It is presented in partnership with Antmar Entertainment.

Anthony Lamarr White is a playwright from Perry FL, and the Monticello Opera House is proud to support this new play by a local playwright. He is a 2017-2018 Reiser Lab playwright with Atlanta’s Tony Award-winning The Alliance Theatre.
