The Misfits


  • Playwright

    Annie Ryan 

  • Adapted / Translated From

    Arthur Miller

  • Adapted From Notes

    Adapted by Annie Ryan from Arthur Miller's script for the 1961 film, The Misfits, directed by John Huston.

  • Synopsis

    A woman walks out of a divorce court into a bar. A rundown saloon on the outskirts of a desert town in the American West. There’s no work. At least, not much worth doing for a man. But a man is the last thing this woman is looking for. It's hot and dry. A place of few words and little growth. The open sky still offers the promise of a better future. But all around them lie the broken remains of a damaged past.
