A.R. Gurney (playwright)

Albert Ramsdell Gurney Jr. (November 1, 1930 – June 13, 2017), a pen name A. R. Gurney (sometimes credited as Pete Gurney) was an American playwright, novelist and academic. He is known for works including The Dining Room (1982), Sweet Sue (1986/7), and The Cocktail Hour (1988), and for his Pulitzer Prize-nominated play Love Letters. His series of plays about upper-class WASP life in contemporary America has been called “penetratingly witty studies of the WASP ascendancy in retreat.”

Actors’ Equity Association(AEA) was founded in 1913 as the first of the American actors’ unions. Equity’s mission is to advance, promote, and foster the art of live theatre as an essential component of our society. Today, Equity represents more than 40,000 actors, singers, dancers, and stage managers working in hundreds of theatres across the United States. Equity members are dedicated to working in the theatre as a profession, upholding the highest artistic standards. Equity negotiates wages and working conditions and provides a wide range of benefits including health and pension plans for its members. Through its agreement with Equity, this theatre has committed to the fair treatment of the actors and stage managers employed in this production. AEA is a member of the AFL-CIO and is affiliated with FIA, an international organization of performing arts unions. For more information, visit www.actorsequity.org
