DESIRE An evening of one act plays based on Tennessee Williams’ short stories

The Acting Company has commissioned Pulitzer Prize-winner Beth Henley and Tony-winner John Guare along with Elizabeth Egloff, Marcus Gardley, Rebecca Gilman and David Grimm to celebrate one of America’s greatest wordsmiths. Desire is certain to be a classic for the 21st Century, keeping Tennessee Williams’ words alive and introducing him to new audiences. Depicting love and innocence, isolation and loss, these unforgettable tales serve as a reminder that great stories have the power to change one’s life.

Desire will have its world premiere at 59East59 Theater, September 2-October 10. TICKETS:  212.279.4200 or www.59e59.org.
