Friday, March 25, 4 – 5:15 PM, Tennessee Williams Scholars Conference Session
Amor Perdido / Lost Love is a presentation of four magical stories by Tennessee Williams: a sailor’s brief encounter in port (“The Lost Girl”), a writer and his soulmate in the French Quarter (“Dear Irene”), a vagabond artist at the end of his rope in a Mexican plaza (“Amor Perdido”), and a solitary young woman who finds a lover aboard a mysterious ship (“Blue Roses and the Polar Star”). A company of actors is accompanied by the songs of a street troubadour in this production from the University of Illinois and the Celebration Company of Urbana, Illinois. Performers include Jordan Coughtry, Nisi Sturgis, Joi Hoffsommer, Gary Ambler, Amy Toruno, and Scott Knier.
