2014 - Circle of Friends
Our ninth year expanded our understanding of Williams by focusing on his Circle of Friends. Four Tennessee Williams plays were presented together with those of four of his friends: Yukio Mishima’s The Lady Aoi, a collection of short plays by William Inge, Jane Bowles’ In the Summer House, and Carson McCullers’ American masterpiece, The Member of the Wedding. Williams orbited within a world of writers at the peak of their craft, and our circle of friends in Provincetown made it our most successful Festival ever.
The pulse of drumbeats welcome the Festival audience to a mystical world in the hidden courtyard at The Historic Hermann-Grima House, an oasis in the heart of the French Quarter.
Based on a Tennessee Williams short story, a young drifter encounters an older woman's desires in the Louisiana Bayou.
When four eccentric, unforgettable women end up together under one roof in St. Louis in the mid-1930s, high hopes meet with a creeping loneliness, and dashed plans mix uneasily with irrepressible dreams.
This rarely performed cult classic thrilled Provincetown audiences last year in a remarkable outdoor staging of Act II. This year, the Festival stages the full play in and around the waters of the Provincetown Bay.
A "serious comedy," this light-hearted Christmastime play strikes a charming balance between loss and hope, and suggests that even after years of inner troubles, the gift of wistful optimism is still within reach.
This haunting autobiographical play, set in a broken-down boardinghouse in New Orleans, reveals a young Tennessee Williams' musings on life through a series of interwoven vignettes, featuring a colorful array of characters.
This all-new pair of dances, inspired by two Tennessee Williams one-acts, blends movement and text to bring his stories to life in thrilling new shapes and sounds.
A ghostly apparition appears in a hospital room in this modern version of an ancient Japanese Noh play, adapted by Yukio Mishima and performed with puppets by the widely acclaimed Abrahamse-Meyer Company from South Africa.
Four one-act plays by William Inge take a kaleidoscopic look at unrequited love between men, and conservative Midwest culture. This theatrical mash-up, performed by an all-male ensemble, taps the light and dark humor running through four outrageous stories of pain and joy.
Race, politics, sex, and adolescence swirl around twelve-year-old tomboy Frankie as she struggles with life in her small Southern town. The Festival's new staging, as a radio play with an all black cast, brings new attention to a touching and poetic classic by one of America's finest novelists.
This 60-minute lesson on Tennessee Williams will brief you on the playwright, with handy insights about our lineup of performances.
Williams and his circle of friends knew the value of great food and drink. In the spirit of fine dining and friendship, join us at the Crown & Anchor on Thursday night for an unforgettable Festival kick-off full of old acquaintances and new faces alike.
John Lahr, author of a long-awaited Williams biography, sits down for a talk with editor Thomas Keith to discuss Williams' sweet and sour friendships with movie stars, writers, hangers-on, Tallulah Bankhead, and more of those who made up his circle of friends.
