HIS GREATNESS Plays As Part Of FringeNYC Encore Series 9/17-25

If you missed it during the 13th Annual New York International Fringe Festival (or even if you didn't...) Award-winning playwright Daniel MacIvor's HIS GREATNESS - based on a potentially true story about two days in the life of playwright Tennessee Williams - will be presented as part of the FringeNYC Encore Series at the Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam Street) in Manhattan.

Three men, a great American playwright, his trusted and loyal assistant, and a young Canadian street hustler, find themselves together for two days in a hotel room in Vancouver. HIS GREATESS is a voyage through the mind of a great American playwright - potentially Tennessee Williams - presenting the man as he's never been seen before, grasping at straws of his former glory, pleading for some form of rebirth.

Directed by Tom Gualtieri, HIS GREATNESS features a cast of Peter Goldfarb (a Helen Hayes Award nominee for OLD WICKED SONGS) as The Playwright; Dan Domingues (recently seen Off-Broadway in NIGHT SKY opposite JorDan Baker) as The Assistant; and Michael Busillo (recently seen Off-Broadway in the Abingdon Theatre Company's TEXAS HOMOS).

Design team for HIS GREATNESS is: Tania Bijlani (Set Design); Seth Reiser (Lighting Design); Ciera Wells (Costume Design).
