"The peak of my virtuosity was in the one-act plays.
Some of which are like firecrackers on a rope." - Tennessee Williams
"Williams felt that one-acts were his strongest format," Houk points out. "He started out in St. Louis writing one-act plays, and one of his biggest breaks was winning a competition sponsored by the Group Theater in New York—the first time he signed his name as 'Tennessee' rather than 'Tom.' He wrote more than 70 throughout his career—sometimes edgy, often experimental, and always infused with his unsurpassed poetry. Many of them have been presented at the Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis."
"Something Spoken: Tennessee Williams On the Air" will be sponsored by Mary Strauss, Jane and Bruce P. Robert Charitable Foundation, Ted Wight, John Russell and Terry Schnuck, with more patrons to be announced in the coming weeks.
