Blanche and Beyond
Main Stage August 2, 2009
Adapted & Directed by - Steve Lawson
Based on the hilarious, raunchy, and poignant letters which Tennessee Williams wrote between 1945 and 1957, Blanche and Beyond is the stage sequel to Lawson's A Distant Country Called Youth. While the first play traced the evolution of a young man finding his artistic voice, Blanche and Beyond spans the peak of Williams' career - the period of Streetcar, Rose Tattoo, Summer and Smoke, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof - and explores a no-longer obscure playwright facing the seismic shock of international fame.
Running Time: approximately 90 minutes
