Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune has written an article regarding the late playwright, Lanford Wilson.  Mr Wilson wrote BALM IN GILEAD, a play Billy performed in at Steppenwolf Theatre back in 1980.

The article features a great photo of Billy with Laurie Metcalf and Gary Sinise (do click on the image in the article, it links to a much larger photo).

The late playwright Lanford Wilson lives on in the heart and soul of Steppenwolf .
