- Drama Desk Nom., “Best Actor” – Fritz Weaver, A Life
A Life draws on autobiographical materials that Leonard tapped both in his memoir, Home Before Night, and in the later play, Da. But Leonard’s canny observation carries A Life beyond regional interest; this is work of universal insight into human weaknesses and strengths, and the knotty crisscrosses of personality and relationships.
“Once again, Leonard fills the stage with a fine Irish mist of language that makes us think and laugh- and above all, care.” -Newsday
“Mr. Leonard has created A Life of memorable wit and feeling… Drumm is not only worth an evening; he is a man who ultimately commands our laughter, affection and compassion.” -The New York Times
