Frank Gilroy (1925-2015) won both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play for The Subject Was Roses. He adapted that play and another, The Only Game In Town, for film, and wrote screenplays for “Desperate Characters” and “The Gallant Hours.” His play Who’ll Save the Plowboy?, in which SBTA’s producer/director William Smithers played a leading role, received the Obie Award for Best Drama. Gilroy’s son Tony is a screen writer (the “Bourne” series starring Matt Damon) and screenwriter/director of the George Clooney film “Michael Clayton.”
