TEN BLOCKS ON THE CAMINO REAL
Our next show will be Ten Blocks On The Camino Real by Tennessee Williams, the rarely-performed, original version of the play later known as Camino Real.
Ten Blocks On The Camino Real is a fantasy play, written in the 1940's at the peak of Tennessee's creative powers. It was meant to be an impressionistic melding of action, poetry, music, masks, and dance that Tennessee believed captured the world we live in with a new kind of "plastic theater". The play was never produced, but was expanded for Broadway as the more convoluted and realistic Camino Real. Beau Jest has permission from the estate to fully stage the original one-act in all its experimental glory, with a live band, innovative movement, an original score, a creative design team, and a cast of nine actors working together to find the heart at the center of this important missing link in Tennessee's canon.
