Tennessee Williams Institute

Think you know Tennessee Williams? Think again.

 

The Tennessee Williams Institute is a graduate-level immersion course (also suitable for advanced undergraduate or PhD candidates) offered annually in conjunction with the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival.

The course offers a new and expansive approach to the plays of Tennessee Williams for those who will shape his reputation in the future: up-and-coming directors, teachers, critics, scholars, designers, dramaturgs, producers, playwrights, and actors.

TWI students participate in a series of private seminars with scholars who specialize in Tennessee Williams. Seminars will relate directly to live performance -- participants analyze and discuss Williams plays and then experience them in Festival productions, discovering where meaning unfolds in moments of action and stagecraft.

Emphasis is placed on the overtly theatrical elements found consistently in Williams’ plays from the 1930s to the 1980s; the unique theatrical aesthetic of Williams late work in content and performance; and the ongoing evolution of Williams’ reputation in the critical and popular imagination.

The Festival offers an unmatched range of performance and scholarship all in one place, a unique opportunity for academic study in an artistic context.

A full curriculum, schedule, and reading list is available upon request.
