The Day on Which a Man Dies

by Tennessee Williams

Tennessee Williams Festival in Chicago, East Hampton and Provincetown

July-October, 2009

Based on the life of Jackson Pollock, David Kaplan’s visceral, world premiere production of Tennessee Williams’ newly-uncovered play thrilled audiences in Chicago, East Hampton and Provincetown’s Tennessee Williams Festival.

“The elegant and powerful Jennie Moreau as the Woman and the crazed Neanderthal of an artist Jeff Christian, deliver meticulously crafted and blazingly honest performances that cry, ʻacting should be like this.'”       New City

“Jeff Christian acts up a visceral storm in the role of the distressed artist whose alcohol-fueled despair is a stark contrast to the prim composure of Jennie Moreau’s consort and the wry detachment of Gerson Dacanay’s Asian host.”   Windy City Times

“Strong performances from Jeff Christian and Jennie Moreau.”   Chicago Tribune ***

“The work is profound, intense and very intimate.”   Theatreworld
