Jerome Kilty

Director, Performer, Writer
( b. Jun 24, 1922 Pala Indian Reservation, California, USA - d. Sep 09, 2012 Weston, Connecticut, USA ) Male
Also known as: Jerry Kilty
Kilty was an actor who, as director and playwright, created several epistolary dramas, including Dear Liar.

In 1948, Mr. Kilty, a graduate of Harvard University, along with Albert Marre and a few others, co-founded the Brattle Theater Company in Cambridge, MA. The company played host to the likes of Jessica Tandy, Zero Mostel and a young Nancy Marchand.

In 1963, Mr. Kilty starred in an international tour of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? When it arrived in South Africa, Albee insisted the play be performed before integrate audiences. It successfully played in Durban and Port Elizabeth, but was shut down in Johannesburg by the government, purportedly due to what was deemed the offensive content of the drama. However, Mr. Kilty stated that the authorities' real objection was to the racially mixed audiences.

In later years, the actor played Phil Hogan in the 1984 Broadway revival of A Moon for the Misbegotten and was a Senator in Larry Gelbart's satire Mastergate. His many regional theatre credits include appearances at Chicago's Court Theatre, American Repertory Theatre, Alley Theatre, Asolo Theatre, Goodman Theatre and Yale Rep.
