A moving and incisive portrait of legendary tennis player William Tilden. Big Bill is a quick-paced work that captures Tilden's turbulent life in a series of scenes that shift back and forth in time. Performed on a set that resembles a tennis arena, the play illuminates the sportsman's distinguished career, extravagant style, personal travails, and, ultimately, his calamitous downfall.
