In his new play, Chaucer in Rome, it is the year 2000, and Ron and his wife come to Rome to search for their son. And with his inimitable wit and understanding, Guare has written a scathingly funny satire on the warping hunger for fame, and the betrayal involved in creating art.

Editorial Reviews

USA Today
A woozy,fragile,hilarious heartbreaker ... the writing is lush with sad,ironic wisdom about fame,love,and deluded values.
Guare's most disciplined,merciless yet lovable work since Six Degrees of Separation and maybe his best yet.
New York Times
Splendid ... a joyful affirmation of life and of John Guare's artistry ... Mr. Guare is in a class by himself.
Newsday
Guare's most disciplined,merciless yet lovable work since Six Degrees of Separation and maybe his best yet.
