ABOUT
Celebrate the centennial of Tennessee Williams’s birth with MTC. We have long had a relationship with the seminal American playwright, not only recently producing his ubiquitous A Streetcar Named Desire, but also posthumously premiering Fugitive Kind and Spring Storm.

Awarded Best Play in 1945 by the New York Drama Critics’ Circle and acclaimed as Williams’s first great Broadway success, this emotionally devastating portrait of hope is a memory of Saint Louis during the 1930s. Aspiring poet Tom Wingfield reluctantly works in a warehouse to support his overbearing mother and debilitatingly shy sister. Pushed by his mother, he finds his sister a gentleman caller to try to coax her from her fragile private world. Don’t miss this beautifully reimagined modern classic.
