“The Playhouse is about to enter its 100th year, and I can’t think of a better way to kick off the celebration than with the expansion of our new works program beginning with this new development production and these extraordinary artists,” said Danny Feldman, the Playhouse’s Producing Artistic Director. “As a young playwright, Tennessee Williams premiered two new plays at The Playhouse, and it is fitting that our first PlayWorks production features a revealing glimpse into the life of this great American playwright.”
The Playhouse says this production features “mature content.”
