A Distant Country Called Youth

1 Male, 0 Female

Steve Lawson from the early letters of Tennessee… Price: $9.99

Spanning the twenty five years from boyhood to the opening of The Glass Menagerie, this one man show evokes the evolution of an American genius through his extraordinary correspondence with family, friends, lovers and other writers

Hilarious, raunchy and poetic in turn, the piece spotlights these fairly obscure years in William's life. Here is a young Thomas Lanier Williams growing up, exploring and finding his artistic voice as Tennessee Williams
