Elaine May and Terrence McNally, 1969

“We need to bring the barriers down, not build walls, but tear them down.

We need to start loving one another and see how connected we all really are.

I think that’s the message of art.” Terrence McNally

Terrence McNally, Audra McDonald

Floating World Pictures (Jeff Kaufman, Marcia S. Ross), with Lakeview Productions and Talu Productions present Every Act of Life, a new documentary on playwright Terrence McNally’s pioneering five decades in the American theatre. With exclusive, intimate access, this is the first documentary about one of the world’s most honored and risk-taking writers, and an immersive exploration of how to make the third act of life as interesting as the first two. Through Mr. McNally’s intimate and adventurous personal journey, the film is a unique inside history of the American theatre; the struggle for LGBT rights; battles with alcohol and cancer; passion, loss, and love; and the continual pursuit of inspiration in life and work.
