About Us

"By giving us Williams unplugged,
the brave folks at the Provincetown festival
are doing the necessary, good work..."
-- American Theatre Magazine



Advancing the spirit of Tennessee Williams through performance


We honor Tennessee Williams by presenting his classic and undiscovered plays, the work of his peers, and new work inspired by Williams’ creative vision worldwide. The Festival contributes to the cultural wealth of Provincetown by celebrating Williams’ connection to Cape Cod, his evolving international importance and his avant-garde spirit.

This page provides a directory of past shows, videos, and a link to the full list of Williams plays produced by the Festival. For further details on our history, and the themes that have organized each Festival year, visit the opening page of our Press Kit.
