SEPTEMBER 23 - 26, 2021


happy 110th birthday to tennessee williams!

To celebrate, we’re giving you nine chances to win amazing Provincetown experiences!
We can’t gather in person to celebrate Tennessee Williams’ birthday on March 26th, but we can still celebrate everything about the town he loved during his summers writing here. So we’ve put together nine collections of gift certificates, overflowing with exceptional Provincetown experiences for you to enjoy while you’re here for the Festival, or at any other time! And we’ve got a special deal on raffle ticket prices to mark his 110th birthday!
Our choice to offer Provincetown gift certificates is part of our Year of Gratitude.
“We want to thank Provincetown for the incredible support we've received during the pandemic,” said Joe Paprzycki, our Festival Development chair. “Other theaters and festivals had to cancel their 2020 productions. But we were able to stage limited outdoor performances locally, while the companies who planned to travel here performed in their local communities. We're working hard to bring all the companies to Provincetown as originally intended for this year’s Festival, so we deeply appreciate the support of everyone who purchases raffle tickets this year."

Celebrating the power of live performance, furthering the spirit of Tennessee Williams


I've been waiting to write this email on behalf of the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Festival for a time when a Covid vaccine would be released.
That happened Monday. And so this week the odds are good we will have a 2021 Festival in Provincetown, September 23-26.
We don't yet know specifics. It will be a while before we're ready to announce our season.
But right now I know this: you're invited.
Since March our slogan has been If We Can, We Will. In September our audience gathered outdoors in Provincetown’s public parks, circled a maypole in the Truro woods, and parked at the base of a towering sand dune. What we presented in September 2020—ten different live events—took planning and passion, caution and hope, and your support.
With planning, passion, caution, hope—and your continuing support —we’ll be able to act on our 2021 slogan: 
If We Can, We Will… Again.
If you have not already done so, please consider supporting our Year-End Campaign.
Please keep in touch, 
We will,
David Kaplan, Curator and Co-founder
