Out of the Box Theatre Company will continue its 2021-22 season with an Actors’ Equity Association–approved showcase production of Five By Tenn, an evening of short plays by Tennessee Williams.
The five Tennessee Williams one-act plays featured in Five by Tenn are “The Strangest Kind of Romance,” “The Last of My Solid Gold Watches,” “The Lady of Larkspur Lotion,” “Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen” and “Hello From Bertha.”
While each play is set within a rather shabby bedroom in a rather seedy location from East St. Louis to New Orleans, the audience is introduced to a delightful range of seven female and eight male Williams’ characters striving to survive and thrive within their less-than-fortunate situations.
“Five By Tenn is a montage of five Tennessee Williams’ one-act plays that looks life squarely in the eye, unapologetically. The unabated reality for each person in this diverse and colorful group of people is not always pleasant, sparking an array of raw organic emotions that encompass hurt, pain, betrayal, loss, failure, love, laughter, anger, bitterness and loneliness,” said Ward Nixon, director of Five By Tenn.
