Five By Tenn

Five By Tenn

From the 2004-05 Season

Final performance was December 19th, 2004

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Michael Kahn

with Kathleen Chalfant, Cameron Folmar, Penny Fuller, Hunter Gimore, Jeremy Lawrence, David Rasche, Robert Sella, Myk Watford

Four of the five one acts in Five by Tenn were found several years ago by scholars Nick Moschovakis and David Roessel in Austin while doing research for an edition of Williams’ collected poems. Moschovakis and Roessel brought the plays, along with a dozen others, to director Michael Kahn’s attention, and Kahn found Summer at the Lake, And Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens, The Fat Man’s Wife and Adam and Eve on a Ferry especially stageworthy. Presented with the Williams gem, I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow, they comprise Five by Tenn.
