Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company Presents:
Six by TENN - 6 rare plays by Tennessee Williams
New York, NY -
Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company is proud to kick off its inaugural season with performances of six rarely produced short plays by Tennessee Williams.
Often with a sense of humor and always poignant, Six by Tenn, explores themes of passion, love, death, and hope. The 6 rare shorts include The Municipal Abattoir, Mr. Paradise, Hello From Bertha, The Fat Man’s Wife, The Pink Bedroom, and Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen...
Until recently four of these plays (The Municipal Abattoir, Mr. Paradise, The Fat Man’s Wife, and The Pink Bedroom), were never-before-published. Written decades ago, only within the past 10 years have they made their debut in production!
Around 1950 Tennessee Williams wrote to Elia Kazan,
“I don’t write with the effervescence that I used to. It comes harder. The peak of my virtuosity was in the one-act plays, some of which are like fire-crackers in a rope.”
Playhouse Creatures are pleased to explore these rare works and invite you to join us for a diverse evening of shows by one of America’s greatest playwrights!
