SLIPSTREAM THEATRE INITIATIVE
by Maxim Vinogradov
Join us for a tour of famous and infamous stars, led by a man admired by more stars than any other: the one and only Tennessee Williams! Appearances on the tour include Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, Bette Davis, Truman Capote, Katharine Hepburn, and many more along the way. As in all good tours, the history becomes almost more realistic than the present as the ghosts from the past materialize as flesh and blood. Asking if he lived the right life, Tennessee and his assistant guide the audience through the museum of his hazy mind, revisiting lovers, siblings, and stars upon stars. But what happens when Tennessee tries to change the events of his past? What aspects of our legacy do we try to suppress, and which do we try to showcase? What is worth keeping, and what is better off forgotten?
Written by Wilde Award-winner Maxim Vinogradov, this script recently won the Hopwood Award in Drama, the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival's National Partners of the American Theater Playwriting Award, as well as the Dennis McIntyre Prize. It is also nominated for a Wilde Award this season for Best New Script.
