Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis 2019 Season will be from May 9th-19th Tickets are priced from $25-$50 and can be found at: https://www.metrotix.com/events/detail/tennessee-williams-festival-st-louis twstl.org Mainstage Shows: The Night of the Iguana The Grandel Theater, May 9–19 The steamy and startling Iguana is one of the most richly textured and dramatically satisfying plays written by Williams. At its center is Shannon, a pastor who has lost his flock, has lost his religion, and has—at the very least— misplaced his sanity and sense of decency. A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur The Grand Hall at The Grandel, May 11–19 Four eccentric and unforgettable women fry chicken, plan a picnic to Creve Coeur Lake, and cope with loneliness and lost dreams in an efficiency apartment on Enright Avenue in the Central West End circa the mid-1930s. Williams gives us more laughs than usual, but no less poetry or poignancy. Dear Mr. Williams The Curtain Call Lounge, May 10–11 The tumultuous -- and sometimes treacherous -- journey from adolescence to adulthood is one we all must take, but it's oh so much more fascinating and fun with Tennessee Williams as your guide.
