Edith Wharton’s 1911 short story about divorce American style, “Autres Temps,” was adapted by Dennis Krausnick with a theatrical twist: instead of the early 20th century, the play is set in 1962. The cast includes real-life mother and daughter Diane Prusha and Rory Hammond playing Mrs. Lidcote and daughter Leila; Corinna May as Susy Suffern; and James Goodwin Rice as Franklin Ide. The play is directed by Catherine Taylor-Williams; costumes are designed by Arthur Oliver.
