The Poetry of Tennessee Williams, A Dramatic Reading

Discover the poetry of one of America’s most important playwrights. Few people know that Tennessee Williams was a poet before he turned to playwriting and that he continued to write poetry throughout his career. Poems such as “The Beanstock Country” and “Night Visit” are equal to the great monologues of his plays and rank among the finest poems of his generation. The evening was created and directed by David Landon in collaboration with seven actors from New York’s prestigious Michael Howard Studios. Join us to celebrate the publication of The Collected Poems of Tennessee Williams, edited by David Roessel and Nicholas Moschovakis at David Landon’s suggestion.

6 p.m., Monday, September 20, Martin E. Segal Theatre, Res. Code 5039
