The Celebration Series, Eclipse Theatre Company’s two-year celebration of the first ten playwrights featured by Eclipse, begins by honoring the life and work of 1999 featured playwright Tennessee Williams with the Chicago premiere of “Candles to the Sun,” the first full-length play he wrote before Thomas Lanier Williams became famous as “Tennessee.”
Set during the Great Depression in Alabama’s Red Hills coal mining region, “Candles to the Sun” paints a portrait of the bleak lives of the miners’ families and their attempts to unionize. Recent Jeff-award winning director Steven Fedoruk (who directed Eclipse’s hit “Blues for an Alabama Sky”) will return to direct Williams’s rarely produced piece.
