The Long Goodbye And Other Shorts by Tennessee Williams
St Louis, Missouri, 1940s.
The great Tennessee Williams was a multi-award-winning American playwright who changed the face of American theatre. Best known for his plays The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire, Williams’ electrifying short plays have also fascinated and thrilled actors and audiences for decades.
We begin in a bedroom, as a number of characters drift in and out, unpacking their troubled lives, impassioned relationships and personal dramas, some full of regret and missed opportunity, some caught in fantasy, some mired in a murky pit of alcohol dependency. Each story looks deep into the complexity and fragility of human nature; at times, difficult to witness, but constantly compelling and mesmeric to experience.
This is a unique opportunity to see a hand-picked selection of rarely performed short plays, written mostly in the 1940s and set in St Louis, Missouri, where Tennessee Williams grew up.
