  1. Staircase

    Staircase is a two-character play by Charles Dyer about an aging gay couple who own a barber shop in the East End of London. One of them is a part-time actor about to go on trial for propositioning a police officer. The action takes place over the course of one night as they discuss their loving but often volatile past together and possible future without each other. The playwright named his characters Charles Dyer and Harry C. Leeds, which is an anagram of his name. In 1966 it was produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company with Paul Scofield and Patrick Magee. The Broadway production directed by Barry Morse opened on January 10, 1968 at the Biltmore Theatre, where it played for 12 previews and 61 performances. Eli Wallach and Milo O'Shea, who was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play, starred.
