Williams 101: Everything You Wanted to KnowDISCUSSION
This 60-minute lesson on Tennessee Williams will brief you on the playwright, with handy insights about our lineup of performances.
with Williams ScholarsProvincetown, MA
It's our pleasure to introduce you to Tennessee Williams: writer, lover, son, brother, amateur painter and America's great playwright.
In 60 minutes, we'll bring you up to speed on what Williams wrote and why, from smash hits on Broadway to outrages for the stage that were way ahead of their time. We'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know — but were afraid to ask — about his life and legacy, from his hometown in the Mississippi Delta, to St. Louis, New Orleans, Hollywood, New York and, of course, to Provincetown.
This lecture and conversation, presented by our curatorial staff and a rotating cast of festival artists and Williams Institute scholars, is the perfect overture to this year's theme: Tennessee Williams and his Circle of Friends.
