contemporary theater.

The Wooster Group's members are Jim Clayburgh, Willem Dafoe, Spalding Gray,
Elizabeth LeCompte, Peyton Smith, Kate Valk, and Ron Vawter. Under the
direction of LeCompte and with its associates and staff, the Group has
created and performed all of its theater pieces at their home base, The
Performing Garage, in the Soho district of New York City. The Group's
repertory has toured widely in the US and Europe, as well as to Asia,
Australia, Canada, and South America.
Note: Wooster Group member Ron Vawter died April 16, 1994.

years of sustained excellence. That same year, Director Elizabeth LeCompte
