Food For Thought Productions Finishes 2021 Season with Arthur Miller, Bob Dishy & Blythe Danner

Food For Thought Productions Finishes 2021 Season with Arthur Miller, Bob Dishy & Blythe Danner

Food For Thought Productions, now in its 21st year, continues celebrating the oft-neglected one-act play and theatre at its best with Award-winning actors, writers and directors, with a tremendously fun production on December 6th, 2021.

Arthur Miller’s I Can’t Remember Anything, Directed by Antony Marsellis. While they will be performing the usual DPS version of the play, David Palmer of the Miller Society will join in for the Q&A and will talk about the other ending presented in Kushner’s anthology. Revolving around a widow, her husband’s best friend and her inability to remember much of the past, this compelling drama is filled with humor throughout. 20 years ago during the Company’s Second Season, which starred Elaine Stritch and Bob Dishy! And, even more exciting was that Arthur Miller was in the audience. The last time FFTP presented the play was in January 2021 with Penny Fuller and . . . Bob Dishy. At that performance, the Arthur Miller Society got in touch with FFTP Founder Susan Charlotte and wanted to do an article on the show. After several conversations, she discovered that Miller had written two different versions, each with a different ending. The version she, and most companies, used was from the Dramatists Play Service, but this new version was included in the Library of America anthology, The Collected Works of Arthur Miller, edited by Tony Kushner.

So, FFTP is back with, in her first FFTP appearance, Blythe Danner & Bob Dishy starring in
