RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

He was one of the great twentieth century American playwrights, and Tennessee Williams' private persona is shown to have been just as fascinating as his plays in this delightful, moving, and incisive ninety minute drama. The play is structured as an interview with a reporter, to whose unheard questions Williams responds directly to the audience as if they are doing the asking. We learn of the struggles of his early years, his first successes, the price of his fame and his later years of dissolution and decline, all in Williams' delightfully witty style.
