Small Craft Warnings
May 4–14, 2017
The marquee, must-see, production of the festival is the little-known but critically heralded Williams play Small Craft Warnings. Richard Corley, one of America’s most praised Williams directors, directs a cast of St. Louis’s top performers. The cast is headlined by New York’s much-lauded Williams interpreter Jeremy Lawrence as Doc, a role Williams himself played in its original New York City run.
An expansion of Tennessee Williams's earlier one-act play, Confessional, Small Craft Warnings is a kaleidoscopic pastiche of monologues delivered in a spotlight by each of the characters as the action around them becomes frozen and muted. Through them they reveal their loneliness and the emptiness of their existence.
Festival and Flex pass only includes events from May 3-7, and not the encore presentations
