17th Annual Williams Festival Brings You ALL-Tennessee for the First Time in 16 Years!



Williams lovers will be ecstatic to hear that not only is the festival back for it’s 17th annual season this September 22-25th, but every single production will be penned by the master of American theater himself, highlighting works from his entire career from the 1930s through the 1980s. A wide array both iconic and lesser-known pieces will feature artists from South Africa, Cyprus, New Orleans, London, New York, Boston and more – such a Tutti-Frutti treat!

Check out the features in this year’s program program below:

  • A Streetcar Named Desire: The 1940’s classic
  • One Arm: A new adaptation from South Africa of the Williams short story
  • Vieux Carré: A celebration of memory begun in 1939 and completed in 1977
  • The Magic Tower: A 1930’s dream of a happy marriage
  • Cat on a Hot Tin Roof: The 1955 Pulitzer Prize winner
  • This is the Peaceable Kingdom, or Good Luck God: A caricature of enlightenment from 1981

The Festival’s roster of live performances will also be complimented during Festival week by parties and educational programming to celebrate the enduring inspiration of America’s great playwright.

“The season is called Tutti Frutti Tennessee Williams, meaning all flavors of Williams – tutti!,” says Festival Curator, David Kaplan. “From the 1930s to the 1980s, every decade that Williams wrote, from his crowd-pleasing Broadway hits to his radical writing – early and late – that continues to challenge audiences to savor, as he put it ‘the strange, the crazed, the queer’.”
