The Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival September 23-26, 2021 Raffle tickets go on sale today for $50 each or 3 for $110, in honor of Tennessee Williams’ 110th birthday year, and will be on sale until midnight on March 25th. Raffle winners will be drawn on Friday, March 26th.

About the 2021 Festival Theme

Exploring the theme “Censorship and Tennessee Williams”, the 2021 Festival celebrates the provocations perpetrated by Williams and other wayward writers with live performances at outdoor venues throughout Provincetown.
“1621 kicked off in Provincetown with the Mayflower gone, never to return,” says Festival Curator David Kaplan. “Four hundred years of independent thinking followed. The outraged Puritans called it ‘flaunting.’ In 2021, the flaunting persists!”

About the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival

Each year, the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival explores Williams’ famous as well as undiscovered plays, and invites new work inspired by his creative vision and avant-garde spirit. In 2021, at outdoor venues throughout the picturesque seaside village where Williams worked on many of his major works during the 1940s, the Festival will consider the full breadth of America’s great playwright. Along with live performances, the festival offers scholars and enthusiasts the Tennessee Williams Institute and the TW Experience. Now in its 16th year, the Festival is a testament to William’s enduring importance in the 21st century.
