Literary Fest Continued…

There are a lot of events in concert with the Tennessee Williams Literary festival, but today I am going to focus on theatrical events.

At 3 pm, there is a premiere of a production of a Tennessee Williams one-act play, The Reading, directed by a faculty member at the University Of Illinois. And, it’s only $5. (A lot of the events associated with the festival are really expensive). It’s at the Williams Research Center in the FQ.

At 6, local theater company Cripple Creek is presenting two one-act plays by TennWill: This Property is Condemned and Talk to me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen. Le Petit, Muriel’s Cabaret. $25

And, at 7:30, the UNO Department of Film, Theatre and What-Not is presenting The Night of the Iguana, at the Le Petit mainstage. Tickets for this have been going fast. (The run has been extended). But, if you don’t get it in, or you’ve shelled out as many increments of 25 bucks as you can, you can always rent or buy the movie version–which is one of the best ever! Drunk, existential Richard Burton, a totally bad girl Ava Gardner, Nazis, what else do you want?
