Blanche and Beyond

August 2 | Main Stage
2009 Season

Author: Lawson, Steve
Director: Lawson, Steve

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.
