The Hotels Plays: Pink / Tennessee Williams

Hotel Plays - Series 1 (Pink)

by Tennessee Williams
starring Companies from Michigan and Massachusetts

The Infinite Theatre

New York, New York USA


"The world is a circle, and everything comes back to where it started."
-- Woman, from The Pink Bedroom

Williams set many of his plays in hotel rooms and boarding houses: way stations between life and death, dream and reality. The Festival is presenting eight short plays by Williams set in such rooms — in productions gathered from all over the country. Gather at the Gifford House and proceed from room to room to experience Williams up-close and personal.

The Hotel Plays are in two parts, beginning with the Pink Series:
