A car wreck on the slopes of Mt. Morgan puts poet and insurance tycoon Lyman Felt in the hospital. While Lyman recovers, two women meet in the hospital to discover that they are both married to him. With his secrets exposed, Lyman tries to justify himself to the two women--the prim, cultured Theo and the restless, ambitious Leah--at the same time hoping to convince himself that he is blameless. Moving between broad farce and delicate tragedy, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan reveals the struggle between honesty with others and honesty with oneself. This new edition incorporates the revisions Miller wrote for the acclaimed 1998 Public Theatre production starring Patrick Stewart.

From the Back Cover:

Lyman Felt is a dynamic and vigorous man who has it all: a thriving insurance business, fame as a poet, children who adore him -- and two women claiming to be his wife. Restrained, conservative Theo and independent, opinionated Leah meet in the hospital where Lyman is recovering from a car wreck, having driven in a blizzard on Mount Morgan. The women's shock at Lyman's bigamy and Lyman's justification of his actions create a whirlwind of hard truths and painful memories into which Lyman's daughter, his best friend, and even the nurse taking care of him are drawn.

One of America's greatest and most renowned playwrights, Arthur Miller crafts a drama of love, betrayal, and the hunger to reach the limits of human experience and desire.

This new edition of Arthur Miller's 1991 play includes the revisions he made for the acclaimed 1998 Public Theater production starring Patrick Stewart.
