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.
