Why Monday you ask?
Haven’t you heard?
Monday is the new Friday!


The story:
On January 18, 1882, Oscar Wilde, 27, and Walt Whitman, 62, spent three hours together behind closed doors in Whitman’s home in Camden, New Jersey. 


Wilde About Whitman is the story, equal parts historical record and theatrical conjecture, of what they might have said, and done, behind those closed doors.

David Simpatico is a playwright, librettist and performance artist whose work has been presented at major theatres around the globe, including London’s Hammersmith Apollo, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and the New York Shakespeare Festival. David earned his MFA in Creative Writing from the MountainView Writers at Southern New Hampshire University. David is an alumnus of the Composer Librettist Development Program at American Lyric Theater, and a graduate of Northwestern University.
