You may think that you know Tennessee Williams, but you don't. Stone Soup Theatre presents 5 X TENN (OR SO), selected one acts published after the death of one of America's most treasured playwrights. It's been five years since Stone Soup Theatre produced the west coast premiere of 5 X TENN, (directed by Julie Beckman) to both audience and critical acclaim.
Now, to satisfy the hunger of Williams' fans, Stone Soup offers up 5 X TENN (OR SO), six seldom produced one acts, that will transport us to a post-apocalyptic dystopian society with Chalky White Substance; take us to a flooded New Orleans (eerily reminiscent of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina) in Kingdom of Earth; and encounter the dangers, both hidden and obvious, of a fascist regime in The Municipal Abattoir. In addition, equally prophetic, provocative, and confrontational pieces will seduce and shock you: Talk to Me Like the Rain, Sunburst, and The Big Game.
This production features the talents of Scott Zogg, PatRick Baxter, Gianni Truzzi, Terrence Boyd, Jesse Putnam, Brynne Garman, Maureen Miko, and Alysha Curry. 5XTenn (or so) is directed by Ellen Graham.
The performance runs Thursday - Saturday evenings at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 4pm from February 15 - March 9, with previews, Wednesday, Feb. 13th & Thursday, Feb. 14 at $12.50. Sunday matinees, February 24 and March 3, are at 4:00pm. General admission prices are $14 -$25, $18 for seniors. All Thursdays after preview are Pay-What-You-Will.
