Theater showcases lesser-seen works of legend

June 10, 2018 by  

Tennessee Williams is a giant of the American theater, and now Frederick audiences will have a chance to see some of his lesser-known works, when the Endangered Species Theatre Project offers ‘Ten by Tennessee’.

The plays are produced and directed by Aaron Angello and Christine Mosere, and rather than full plays, the presentations are staged readings.

Williams is the author of one of the most famous plays ever staged, ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’. The play brought audiences the vivid characters of Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski. What is intriguing is that audiences will be able to see traces of these familiar characters in the earlier works.

The readings will take place at Sky Stage, an outdoor venue. Mosere and Angello note Williams often wrote outdoors when he was on Cape Cod, and using Sky Stage for the shows will acknowledge Williams’ practice.

The readings will be presented in two parts about a month apart, with the performance each evening running slightly more than an hour. Part one will be presented twice, on June 14 and 15, and part two will be July 16 and 17. All performances start at 7:00 pm. The company also invites people who are interested to attend the dress rehearsals, June 18 and July 15, again beginning at 7:00 pm.
