Written By: William Inge
Directed by: Malika Oyetimein and Sean Ryan (Professional Director Training Program)
William Inge, regarded as one of the masters of the American theater, achieved unprecedented success during one short decade. In the 1950s, one after another, his plays – Come Back Little Sheba (1950), the Pulitzer-prize winning Picnic (1953), Bus Stop (1955), and The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (1957) – became Broadway hits and successful Hollywood films. For their UW Drama main stage debut, our first-year MFA directing candidates, Malika Oyetimein and Sean Ryan, tackle a curated selection of Inge’s most poignant and potent short works.
A post-show talk will be held on Thursday, April 30.
