The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company of New Orleans is a year-round professional theatre company committed to producing captivating, exciting, and moving plays with a major focus on the works of America's greatest playwright, Tennessee Williams.
In the city which Williams called home and from which he drew abundant inspiration, The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company of New Orleans will engage our community and cultivate its relationship with Williams.
We will accomplish this by mounting performances of well-known and rarely produced Williams plays, contributing to the scholarship of Williams and New Orleans, and educating our community onstage and off with unique and stimulating programming.
Tennessee Williams was passionate about New Orleans. We are passionate about both.
Founded in 2015, we are the first theatre in the United States to focus exclusively on the works of America's greatest playwright, Tennessee Williams.
We're dedicated to sharing Williams' unique brand of poetic and often expressionistic theatre with the New Orleans community—an audience which appreciates theatre events as rich, musical, and immersive experiences. We seek to produce Williams plays which are bold, unafraid, poignant, and staggering in their beauty—just as he wrote them.
Join us and we promise to create something intriguing for experienced and new theatre-goers alike. We look forward to collaborating with local artists and organizations to present the highest quality offerings possible. We aim to offer our audiences a chance to see every Tennessee Williams play at one time or another, in one iteration or another. We are sure that our supporters will be surprised and exhilarated by the breadth and diversity of Williams' masterful works.
