NEW YORK PREMIERE

THE GENTLEMAN CALLER

a new play by PHILIP DAWKINS
directed by TONY SPECIALE

starring
DANIEL K. ISAAC (Showtime’s “Billions”) as William Inge

and
JUAN FRANCISCO VILLA (Oedipus El Rey) as Tennessee Williams 

 

Although now regarded as two of history’s finest American playwrights, back in 1944, William Inge and Tennessee Williams hadn’t yet experienced anything close to success. The Gentleman Caller, a new play by Philip Dawkins (Charm, Le Switch, The Homosexuals), takes us back in time before the Chicago premiere of The Glass Menagerie. Inge, a dissatisfied newspaper critic, invites Williams to his St. Louis apartment for an interview. This sexy, fraught rendezvous sparks a relationship, which radically alters the course of their lives and the American Theatre.
