Elisabeth LeCompte / The Wooster Group The Wooster Group

Vieux Carré from Tennessee Williams


This little-known play written a few years before he died, as well as certain of his short stories, revealed a different Tennessee Williams. The Wooster Group, addressing the inner conflict experienced by the great American playwright in the light of liberated New York avant-garde circles of the late seventies, forges a new mode of expression for Williams' lyric voice, refracting the misty past through the sharp, frank lens of the present.
