It's so interesting to see these early works of Williams'. You can literally see him working out the characters of Blanche & Maggie the Cat in some of these pieces. Great acting overall, especially Joe Dallo, Perry Smith, Joe Massingill, Deborah...continued

Description

The 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company celebrates Tennessee Williams’ 100th birthday by presenting Five by Tenn, an evening of five of Williams’ one-act plays. These plays offer a rare chance to explore some of Williams’ lesser-known yet equally powerful works, including early versions of the tragic figures that haunt his later classics, like A Streetcar Named Desire.

In his introduction to this collection, Williams referred to his own theater group, The Mummers of St. Louis, as being “run by a kind of beautiful witchcraft.” Theater 68, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, has been run by a beautiful witchcraft of its own, using impassioned actors and directors to bring written works to life on the LA stage.

Join them in animating Williams’ world, as he explores the themes of love, loss and regret, often set against the background of stifling Southern gentility.
