St. Louis Stories

Saturday, May 6, 2017; 2pm


“St. Louis Stories” is a compilation of unpublished stories by Thomas Lanier Williams (before he became “Tennessee,”) set in the hometown of his youth. The characters reflect people he knew and the places he frequented. Often funny and sometimes harrowing, they testify to the talent of Williams at the beginning of his career. These short stories and narrative poems are presented in a dramatic performance with an ensemble of actors from the Theatre Program of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Adapted for the stage by Tom Mitchell from materials in the Tennessee Williams Collection of the Ransom Research Center, University of Texas at Austin.

Festival and Flex pass only includes events from May 3-7, and not the encore presentations.
