Pacific Theatre Arts 2014-2015 Season

CR27Tennessee Williams One Acts
October 17-25, 2014

Directed by Lisa A. Tromovitch

A collection of poetic one-acts by acclaimed playwright Tennessee Williams. 27 Wagons Full of Cotton, This Property Is Condemned, and Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen are a searing, unabashed look the ultimate destructivity of neglect. The one-acts are a relentless probe into the callousness of a society that refuses to respect and protect the innocence that is peculiarly sacred in a young girl.

This production includes a Twitter Improv Game (better known as roleplaying game) using the hashtag #WilliesWorld. These one-acts were the first step in our Spring 2015 transmedia experience!

Written by Melissa James Gibson
Directed by Macelle Mahala
Featuring the Freshman Honors Program

"In adjacent apartments that resemble nothing so much as broom closets with windows, the three young, ambitious neighbors of Melissa James Gibson's [sic] come together to discuss, flirt, argue, share their dreams, and plan their futures with unequal degrees of deep hopefulness and abject despair, all the while pushing the limits of their friendship to the max and demonstrating that language can be both an instrument of intimacy and a weapon of defense."
