11:30 AM – 12:45 PM—Literary Discussion
DESIRE: FROM PAGE TO STAGE, TENNESSEE TO TODAY
From Stella craving Stanley to Serafina Delle Rose clinging to her lost love, Tennessee Williams was a master at writing and staging desire. In this panel, three prestigious American playwrights—Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues, In the Body of the World), Lisa D’Amour (Airline Highway, Detroit), and Christina Quintana (Azul, Scissoring)—come together for an in-depth discussion of their creative process. How do these women in three different stages of their careers write desire into their plays? How do they see desire represented on contemporary stages today? And how has Tennessee paved their way? Moderated by Peter Hagan, President, Dramatists Play Service. Sponsored by Dramatists Play Service.
