THE MAN IN THE OVERSTUFFED CHAIR: TENNESSEE AND HIS FATHER

The words of Tennessee Williams arranged and performed by Jeremy Lawrence

Cornelius Coffin Williams (C.C. as his cronies called him) famously referred to his son as “Miss Nancy.” Theirs was an uneasy relationship at best and yet in The Glass Menagerie, Williams idealized the absent father as “the man who fell in love with long distance.” And late in his life, Williams wrote, “The play that I want to write as a final play, some day is the story of my father . . . the angry hedge-hog under a floor lamp whose fading silk-fringe appeared to be weeping for him with more forgiveness and compassion than we were old enough or wise enough to give him.” This new piece captures a son’s struggle to love the un-loveable man who was his father.
