An aspiring writer (Christopher Weaver), a homosexual painter (Vinsantos Defonte); a doomed young woman (Emilie Whelan) and her Bourbon Street barker lover; two aging “ladies” living in poverty; and the eccentric irrepressible landlady are the lonely inhabitants of the boarding house at 722 Toulouse Street, where the real life Tennessee Williams stayed upon his arrival to New Orleans in 1938.

“Vieux Carre,” considered one of Williams’ most autobiographical, is a play of echoes and remembrances, a series of engrossing scenes, sometimes brutally candid, sometimes delicately poetic, woven together into a rich and revealing tapestry, glinting with theatricality and throbbing with the feel of life.

This production features the live music of Sidney Bechet by Krewe of Bechet and is Directed by Dennis Monn

produced by the AllWays Lounge in partnership with the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival.
