Lanford Wilson

Directed by: Joseph Blatchley

Welcome to Frank’s Cafe, a greasy spoon diner frequented by dealers, bums and vice. Meet the colourful and often desperate characters of New York’s seedy underworld in Lanford Wilson‘s critically-acclaimed play.

Director Joseph Blatchley trained as an actor, director and film maker. His film Fragments won Outstanding Film of the Year at the 1984 London Film Festival. He has assisted Peter Brook and Maurice Bénichou and has directed across Europe and in the UK at Hampstead Theatre, Gate Theatre, Riverside Studios and Manchester Royal Exchange.
