Progress has been made in developing The Splendor in Midland from the excerpt debuted in Lit Between the Ears, Volume One (
) to a finished play. Inspired by, and interpreted from, Booth Tarkington’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel titled The Magnificient Ambersons, The Splendor in Midland tells the stories of the diverging fortunes of the Ambersons, Minafers, and Morgans.
The Splendor, Act One will be included in William E. Spear’s anthology titled Lit Between the Ears, Volume Two: Mayonnaise in My Cake and Other Delights scheduled for release on October 1, 2009.
“Although our second book contains more original material and less adaptations, The Splendor in Midland holds a special place in our [Two Plus Plus Productions'] efforts,” says Spear. “Tarkington’s novel is accessible and Orson Welles’ intriguing movie from 1942 compelled us to offer our own version.”
