The New Yorker has called Terrence McNally "one of our most original and audacious dramatists and one of our funniest." Now the four-time Tony Award-winning author of such classics as Love Valor Compassion and Master Class returns with two heartrending and humorous plays about friendship, companionship, and love. In Some Men, Terrence McNally takes us on a multigenerational journey of gay life in America. In interwoven vignettes, McNally uses the same characters at different points in their lives as gay men to address such issues as coming out, marriage, adoption, the military, and the AIDS crisis. In Deuce we meet Leona and Midge—two septuagenarian ladies doubles tennis champions who are reunited to be honored at a U.S. Open. As they watch the next generaion of female atheletes, these former tennis partners become embroiled in a verbal t te- -t te as lively and nuanced as any match they ever played.
Terrence McNally is the author of a dozen one-acts and over thirty full-length plays. He has been honored with four Tony Awards--for Love! Valour! Compassion!, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Master Class, and Ragtime--four Drama Desk Awards, two Obie Awards, and an Emmy.
