The Chalky White Substance : Tennessee Suite

Provincetown, Dublin, New Orleans

Two short plays by Tennessee Williams pairing autobiography and science-fiction.

Tennessee Suite begins with The Traveling Companion, a late self-portrait by Tennessee Williams in which a famous author (Vieux) checks into a Manhattan hotel room with only one bed accompanied by a much younger man (Beau) who may or may not be hustling.  The Chalky White Substance follows: Williams’ fantasia of trust and betrayal in which an older man (Mark) and younger (Luke), both hooded, scheme for survival in a landscape devastated by nuclear war.
