Usually ships within 6 days


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 tête-à-tête as lively and nuanced as any match they ever played.
