The 9th Annual Festival lineup has been announced, and single tickets are now on sale.
Tennessee Williams orbited the world among a constellation of friends: playwrights, painters, novelists and composers who, in the 1950s and early 60s were mainstream celebrities at the height of their artistic powers.
These acclaimed men and women kept their private lives private, but shared with each other their secrets and lovers, good parties, a love of words and alcohol, and a belief in hard work as salvation.
The Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival invites you celebrate those friendships with eye-opening productions of plays by Williams alongside those of his contemporaries.
Explore Provincetown and the life of Tennessee Williams by downloading our new free guide: Follow in Tennessee Williams' Footsteps. Take a breezy jaunt through time, stopping in at some of the local places that were most meaningful to Williams and his circle of friends.

Every year, performances by artists from around the country and around the world take place in distinctive Provincetown spaces, where audiences can experience the special flavors that this beautiful, historic seaside town has to offer. Here are just a few:
Juliet Brett and Jack Dilday in Jane Bowles' In The Summer House
In The Summer House will be presented at the Boatslip Resort, where actors will perform outdoors on the stairs of the resort, in and around the pool, and in the waters of the Provincetown Bay.
A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur goes up at 175 Bradford, a 1920s Sears home in the heart of Provincetown. Audiences will share a room with the actors, who will be using the actual bedroom, bathroom, hallway and stairs as part of the set.
And history lovers will get a chance to admire the recently renovated Town Hall, restored to its 1886 glory, during the Festival run of Vieux Carré.
