Goodnight Disgrace

By Michael Mercer

From his wheelchair in a nursing home, the aging Conrad Aiken recalls his long, stormy friendship with Malcolm Lowry. When Aiken is 40, Lowry’s father pays him to tutor the young Malcolm. But the protegĂ© becomes Aiken’s friend, and, gradually, a real literary contender. Mercer’s powerful play reveals the shifts in the two men’s relationship as they struggle with alcoholism, women, creative energy, and each other; and as the student metamorphoses into a rival.“I will be the one they remember,” Lowry declares in their final scene together.
