William Inge One Acts
William Inge, regarded as one of the masters of the American theatre, 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 mainstage 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.
