Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde

Mockingbird Public Theatre
Directed by Rene Copeland
Role: Edward Clarke

“Chip Arnold as Wilde’s barrister, Clarke, turns in top-flight performances…”

Martin Brady
Nashville Scene

“Chip Arnold, as Wilde’s solicitor, offers a nuanced performance that anchors the proceedings perfectly.”

Kevin Nance
The Tennessean

“Chip Arnold is also memorable as Wilde’s own attorney. He gives his character a warmth of formality that makes him understanding if not exactly sympathetic to the client, whom he discovers, too late, is actually guilty.”

Role: Stage Manager

“Studio Tenn’s first production…was first-rate, not least of all because of the uniformly fine contributions of familiar Music City thespians such as Chip Arnold Stage Manager, Matthew Carlton Dr. Gibbs, Nan Gurley Mrs. Gibbs, and others…”

Martin Brady

“Chip Arnold Stage Manager successfully sets the timeline for the audience throughout all three acts, serving up some humorous elements along the way. This was one of his best roles.”
