2013 - Tennessee Williams and Women
Our eighth festival theme, “50% Illusion” focused on Tennessee Williams and Women. From Cape Cod to Cape Town, artists from all over the globe illuminated the important role of women in Tennessee Williams’ work. The familiar classic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (starring Keir Dullea and Mia Dillon as Big Daddy and Big Mama), was balanced by avant-garde productions like The Mutilated (starring John Waters film legend Mink Stole and performance artist Penny Arcade). We brought back Kingdom of Earth by popular demand, and presented a stunning production of The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, that has its roots in a burlesque grouping of Chorus Girl Plays including the world premiere of Curtains for the Gentleman, written by Tom Williams, before he became Tennessee.
This is your chance to meet John Waters cult film legend Mink Stole and Andy Warhol superstar Penny Arcade. They were born to play these outrageous roles in a rarely seen Williams farce, just back from a sold-out run in Provincetown!
All proceeds benefit the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival
Forty years after Keir Dullea played the handsome hobbling Brick in the acclaimed 1974 Broadway revival of Cat, he played Big Daddy at Provincetown's Town Hall. Also starred Mia Dillon (Tony nominee for Crimes of the Heart) as Big Mama.
A burlesque show with dancers and chorus line provided the framework for the world premiere of Curtains for the Gentleman - a comic thriller written by Tom Williams before he became "Tennessee."
Sissy Goforth, a legendary diva (and former Ziegfeld showgirl) is dictating her memoirs atop the mountain of her Italian Riviera estate when the Angel of Death drops in to make love to her.
Cult film star Mink Stole (Desperate Living, Serial Mom) was born to play Trinket, a high-strung high society fugitive. Penny Arcade (a teen-age superstar from Andy Warhol’s Factory) is her bosom buddy Celeste.
Poet Roxi Power is at the forefront of the Neo-Benshi movement, reviving the Japanese art of live over-dubbing of popular films, with a fun twist on American classics.
The sleeper hit from last year's Festival returned from South Africa after winning awards and acclaim in Cape Town.
Forever radical, forever modern, Gertrude Stein’s portraits of women are celebrations of language, playful plays, playful plays on words.
This workshop production was directed by the Festival Curator, David Kaplan, and starred some of our favorite actors from past years.

We created our own "juke joint" in P'town with Eden Brent from the Magnolia State.
Tennessee whiskey and Barbeque! What better way to kick off the Festival than with a family-style feast of down-home cooking, accompanied by the smooth taste of Jack Daniels?
