Presented Sept. 22-25, the Williams Theater Festival unites artists from around the world who perform rarely-seen and classic Williams plays, as well as new works influenced by the late playwright.
Breuer will offer a master class titled "Glass Guignol," in which he will explore a kaleidoscopic vision for The Two-Character Play and incorporate elements from The Glass Menagerie.
The festival will also include productions of the one-act 1940 play The Parade, Or Approaching the End of a Summer, as well as Something Cloudy, Something Clear. The latter will star Tony Award nominee Lou Liberatore.
London's Jermyn Street Theatre will offer The Two-Character Play, starring Paul McEwan and Catherine Cusack; as well as Williams-inspired works including the Carbono Theater Company's Summer and Smoke-inspired dance piece Alma; And Now the Cats With Jeweled Claws, starring Mink Stole and Everett Quinton; Dirty Shorts, featuring celebrity guests; and Jim David's one-man comedy South Pathetic.
An environmental production, Once In a Lifetime, will give theatre lovers the chance to experience four Williams plays within the intimate setting of a hotel room. The plays include Once In A Lifetime, Green Eyes, Sunburst and Traveling Companion. Williams' Orpheus Descending, which was presented last season in a local church, will return with actors Irene Glezos, Thomas Beaudoin and Beth Bartley.
