Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Tennessee Williams classic “A Streetcar Named Desire” and visit his “Glass Menagerie” at the Tampa Bay Great Books Council’s Summer Drama Conference, in-person, at the Compton Park Clubhouse (Tampa Palms) on Saturday, June 25th, from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM.
Even the most hardened New York “straphanger” wouldn’t enjoy a 75-year-long streetcar ride, but that’s what it’s been for the Pulitzer-winning tale of physical strength and human frailty in steamy, sultry New Orleans that launched Tennessee Williams to stardom!
Chief Moderator and TBGBC co-founder Patrick DeMarco sets the stage for the day’s activities by leading the discussion of another Williams classic, “The Glass Menagerie,” in the morning session.
Veteran Great Books and OLLI Moderator Linda Feeney leads the discussion of “A Streetcar Named Desire” during the afternoon session of the TBGBC Summer Drama Conference.
Fee Waived, Food Requested!
Food — especially home-cooked Southern food — plays an important role in Tennessee Williams’ masterpieces, and — in lieu of a registration fee — we’re asking you to bring one of your personal favorites to share with others during our lunch break.
