2010 - under the influence
Year five saw Williams’ work complemented by the poetry, music, film and plays that inspired him. The innovative program featured the premiere of Williams' American Gothic, inspired by the Grant Wood painting, a stellar Orpheus Descending, complimented by a gallery crawl on the Orpheus theme, a play Williams saw in Provincetown by Eugene O'Neill, plus dance accompaniments to two short plays on the theme of Escape.
Another American civil rights story... In wigs and heels!
Meet political powerhouse Andrew Sullivan while sipping cocktails with Varla Jean Merman and hob-nobbing with the filmmaker and one of the stars, Albert Carey before seeing the East Coast Premiere screening of a powerful documentary film about the gay Mardi Gras pioneers who changed the status quo.
Two plays, both set on a sun-drenched front porch: The never-before-seen American Gothic imagines the famous Grant Wood couple as the stern Midwestern parents of Bonnie and Clyde-style gangsters... and in the heat of the Mississippi Delta, 27 Wagons Full of Cotton will be staged on the historic porch of 160 Commercial Street.
In 1940, Tennessee Williams saw a revival of Eugene O'Neill's 1920 play, Diff'rent. Set in a small New England fishing port, it is the personal tragedy of a girl named Emma, who turns from an idealistic virgin at age 20, to a sex-starved fool at 50.
Two plays, two different escapes: The sounds of a jailbreak interrupt a chain-gang’s nightly card game, and a teenage boy swims to his death rather than return to the life his domineering mother has planned for him. The plays will be shown with related original dance choreographed by Paula Frasz for her DanszLoop Chicago ensemble.
Songstress Stella Brooks -- “The white Billie Holiday” -- was the hit of the 1947 Provincetown summer season, and a personal friend of Williams. A New Orleans style funeral in her honor begins in a storefront church with live music, testifying mourners, and an umbrella-wielding second-line dancing down Commercial Street.
Williams and the Movies!
Filmgoing was a seminal experience for Tennessee Williams. Author and film historian John DiLeo presents an eclectic array of fun and surprising clips. See the film stars that made an impression on a young TW, as well as how later films borrow shamelessly, pay tribute, or spoof Williams' work
Visit three neighboring Provincetown Galleries at your leisure to see the work of six artists related to the myth of the poet Orpheus who journeyed to the underworld and returned to share that vision. Paintings, sculpture, video and other media by renowned Cape artists will be installed at The Berta Walker Gallery, DNA and Artstrand.
Staged as a morality play in a Provincetown church, this Williams classic traces a boy-singer's descent into hell in the form of a small-town variety store. From New York's Infinite Theatre, who brought us the 2009 Festival’s crowd-pleasing Hotel Plays.
Hart Crane's poetry inspired a young Tennessee Williams. Doug Tompos brings his acclaimed one-person show from Los Angeles in which he presents Tennessee Williams besotted by the great American poet.
