EVERYONE EXPECTS ME TO WRITE ANOTHER STREETCAR
Jeremy Lawrence revives his much heralded piece drawn from the words and works of Tennessee Williams, including anecdotes and musings about his battle with critics when “the streetcar named success” stopped running, even as he explored new forms because conventional ones could no longer contain “the mad music of his characters.” This most personal of playwrights cannot help but move into a confessional mode as he talks about his coming out and the loss of his lover, Frank Merlo, which precipitated his breakdown. The piece climaxes with the poem “What’s Next on the Agenda, Mr. Williams?” In the spirit of his battle cry, “En avant!”, we are assured that the agenda is quite full and there is much more work to come. Additional performance Friday, 1:00 PM.
