A Way Home
A stripped-down, low-tech, immersive production of four of Tennessee Williams short plays at the West Kensington Ministry (2140 N Hancock St, Philadelphia, PA 19122) in Philadelphia.

Williams later work became very experimental but still explored his classic themes of the crumbling of society, beauty and tragedy in decay, and the labyrinth of human relationships: power, sex, manipulation, responsibility, etc.

The Municipal Abattoir and The Chalky White Substance are set in a dystopian, not-so-far future dictatorship (ala Handmaids Tale), exploring morality, power, and what happens when those in charge fail their citizens. Moonys Kid Don't Cry and Talk to Me Like Rain and Let Me Listen are more relationship-based, following two lower-class couples fighting against the system that keeps them poor and prevents them from having the ability to follow their dreams. All four pieces explore our ability (or inability) to make choices and have agency in the direction of our lives.

We hope to expand audiences' expectations of a theatrical experience by using a non-traditional, site-specific performance space and immersive performance to blur the lines between performer and audience.
