If you like theatre, want to like theatre, or wonder what theatre is all about, then the New Orleans Tennessee Williams Literary Festival (TWF) is for you.
Exploring the playwright’s works and times is only one aspect of this multifaceted festival of theatre held in the most charming and atmosphere packed city of New Orleans.
Aimée Hayes, Producing Artistic Director for Southern Repertory Theatre, discusses the 2013 Festival’s Thursday night theater event, “Those Rare Electrical Things Between People: Readings of Three One-Act Plays by Tennessee Williams,” which she will be directing alongside David Kaplan this March.
Hayes says, "Any opportunity to be in a rehearsal room working on text from Tennessee is one I will never pass up. I don’t believe there is any playwright who writes richer, more complex dialogue and who delves into human emotion and interpersonal psychology like he does. It’s always and forever about his words."
There is too much to list here so go to the website for full festival schedules and illuminations. email@example.com
I have been a couple of times, and between the readings, new works by contemporary playwrights, the city tours, speakers, guest artists and seminars, there is no better way to please your intellect and your senses.
See here some of my previous experiences from festivals and visits past. This year’s TWF promises to be just as complete.
