Highlight of show #7, re-broadcast on KFAI Sunday May 25 at 9:30 p.m. (CST), is Peter Stenshoel’s Slappy the Clown interview. Slappy, “Clown of Industry,” is a roving resident of the orbiting community on a peculiar mission encouraging shopping Little Citizens to buy more things. Slappy is portrayed by Bill Prosser:
William Prosser (1942-1991) was a professor of theatre at Brooklyn College of City University of New York. He ran the Tennessee Williams Fine Art Center in Key West. He directed six productions of Williams’ plays, five of which the playwright saw, criticized, and quite often praised. In the book The Late Plays of Tennessee Williams, Prosser reassesses the playwright’s later works.
