The Stonemason

A powerful, dramatic playfrom the bestselling author of No Country for Old Men and The Road

The Stonemason

From Cormac McCarthy, the acclaimed author of All the Pretty Horses and The Crossing comes a profoundly moving play set in Louisville, Kentucky in the 1970s, among four generations of a family of stonemasons. Ben Telfair admires and respects his grandfather Papaw for following their trade with a religious simplicity. However, Ben's father has abandoned hand-hewn stonemasonry for building contract work, and his nephew Soldier is likewise immune to the old man's guidance and wisdom. The stonemason's trade is dying out, and the family's unwillingness to preserve its truths has tragic consequences. The Stonemason reveals afresh the lyrical prose and mastery of character that distinguish Cormac McCarthy's fiction.
