Zeitgeist Stage presents Eight by Tenn , an evening of eight short plays by Tennessee Williams. Williams is the acclaimed playwright of classic shows such as The Glass Menagerie, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and A Streetcar Named Desire. Over his entire career, Williams consistently wrote short plays which aren’t performed frequently because of their brevity. As the author himself wrote, “The peak of my virtuosity was in the one- act plays. Some of which are like firecrackers on a rope.” Zeitgeist is pleased to present eight of these gems from the master dramatists. Zeitgeist’s evening will consist of The Lady of Larkspur Lotion, Portrait of a Madonna, Auto-Da-Fe, This Property is Condemned, Something Unspoken, A Perfect Analysis Given by a Parrot, The Unsatisfactory Supper , and The One Exception.
(In 2006, SpeakEasy Stage Company presented a program entitled Five by Tenn. Zeitgeist’s Eight by Tenn does not include any of the same play titles.)
