TENNESSEE WILLIAMS: WISHFUL THINKING
September 27-30, 2018
The theme of the 13th Annual Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival explores the drama of anticipation.
This year’s line-up of plays will feature works by Williams and other much-loved writers from around the world, produced and performed by Festival artists and collaborators both new and established.
Festival star Irene Glezos explodes as the Sicilian widow Serafina in this luscious Williams fable of loss, faith, and rebirth.
Tennessee Williams imagines flowers might restore a crushed soul in this unpublished one-act, performed for the first time under the direction of distinguished actress and director Marsha Mason, and featuring Tony and Emmy-winning actor Amanda Plummer.
Rosita maintains a young girl’s trusting heart for 25 years in the great Spanish poet/playwright Federico García Lorca's tender play with songs and music.
A new translation of Anton Chekhov’s “scenes of country life” premieres in Provincetown as an immersive and intimate show.
Sound, not sight, carries audiences through this inspired rendering of the voices one hears in one’s head.
For every shadow there is a bright light shining in this high-spirited ghost story, a play with music and dance accompanied by banjo.
Williams’ satirical wit is on full display in the haunted home of a flailing Mississippi family, where Gothic comedy is shadowed by hysteria -- and hysterical laughter.
Hanna-Barbera’s Saturday morning cartoon character speaks truth to power, reborn as a droll 1950s Southern playwright in DC Comics' new miniseries, presented as a staged reading with the stars of the Festival.
This is an opportunity to be part of the birth of a new performance piece at the intersection of time, space, and longing.
This entertaining 90-minute lesson on Tennessee Williams and this year’s plays will brief audiences on the playwrights, with handy insights about our lineup of performances.
