October 22, 2002|Don Shirley

Ellen Burstyn will star in "The Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All," a stage adaptation of the Allan Gurganus novel, opening at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego on Feb. 1.

The theater's artistic director, Jack O'Brien, said a Broadway run for Martin Tahse's adaptation of the story of a Confederate captain's wife is in the works. The play is almost a solo show, but a young actor also will be on stage in a supporting capacity, O'Brien said.

The Globe also announced the premieres of Stephen Metcalfe's "Loves & Hours," which O'Brien will stage, on March 29, and Andrea Stolowitz's "Knowing Cairo" on April 5, plus the U.S. premiere of Abi Morgan's "Splendour" on Feb. 8 and a production of David Edgar's "Pentecost" on May 31.
