Practical Aesthetics & Tennessee Williams

Actors will be cast in Williams scenes, and will be asked to become very familiar with the whole play while working on the scene with their partner. I will share research on Williams’ history and how elements of his life appear in the plays, and will also show clips from my documentary-in-progress.

We will use the Practical Aesthetics technique to analyze and perform the scenes. I’ve found in previous workshops that Williams’ plays are wonderful vehicles for learning the technique because of the high quality of his writing, high dramatic stakes, unforgettable characters, and poetic language.
