Written in Provincetown in the summer of 1944, Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie further anchored this little spit of sand reaching into the Atlantic Ocean as the birthplace of modern American drama. And – weather permitting — every Monday thru Thursday thru Sept 2 at 7 pm — under the same stars in which Williams wrote it, these four actors are bringing his classic to life in our outdoor “Playhouse-in-the-Parking Lot.”
Indeed, to further appreciate the magic spell they’re creating onstage in The Glass Menagerie, following the performance on Thursday, Aug 12th we’re hosting a post-show discussion with two of the most acclaimed historians of theater in the region: David Kaplan, author of Tennessee Williams in Provincetown and founder of the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival, and Sue Mellen, author of the just-published A History of Theater on Cape Cod. Free to the public, we’re very much looking forward to this meditation on Williams and his muse, Provincetown.
