Spalding Gray

Spalding Gray (born June 5, 1941) is an actor, screenwriter and playwright. He is best known for his performance monologues, which deal with events from his own life in a style characterised by humour, paranoia and acute self-consciousness. He has attracted some attention from postmodernist critics over the extent of the overlap between his off-stage self and his on-stage persona, and has sometimes been criticised as exploitative for the way he appropriates the fortunes or misfortunes of others for material for his monologues. He was a founding member of the experimental theater company The Wooster Group. In January 2004 Gray, known to suffer bouts of depression, was declared missing.
