Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson passed away yesterday at the age of 73. For a comprehensive look at his life and career, check out the New York Times tribute.

I remember seeing local productions of both Talley’s Folly and Burn This (what I wouldn’t give to have been able to see the original production with John Malkovich and Joan Allen) in my teens and thinking, this is what a play is supposed to be: simple, humane and highly realistic. Though my sense of what’s possible on stage has broadened since, I still recall seeing these shows and feeling like I hadn’t just been to a play, but I had gotten to know and fall in love with some new friends, his characters.
