Recipient of the the 2018 Edgerton Foundation New Play Award, Nonsense and Beauty by Scott C. Sickles follows the eminent British novelist E.M. Forster as his romance with Bob Buckingham, a policeman 23 years his junior, falls prey to his fear of discovery. After Bob marries May, a compassionate young woman, Forster remains ensnared in a turbulent and unique love triangle until his death nearly 40 years later. Based on a true story, Nonsense and Beauty captures the wit and wisdom of one of the last century’s great writers.

“The palpable yearnings of its characters in a time of social repression, even for a renowned writer such as Forster, make it a fascinating and absorbing story.” ~ Mark Bretz, Ladue News

“…[A]n engaging and provocative play that questions whether love is always worth pursuing regardless of the cost. Sometimes it’s impossible to know for certain. All we can do is disregard the nonsense and embrace the beauty.” ~ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“A lovingly crafted work of substance, that means something, where the attention to detail is strong, and the approach thoughtful.” ~ Lynne Venhaus, St. Louis Limelight
