Responses to Censorship
September 22 | 12:00 pm
The Tennessee Williams Institute, part of the annual Williams theater festival in Provincetown, will take place from September 22nd to 26th this year. The topic is “creative responses to censorship” — from ancient Greece to Soviet Russia to America during Williams’s lifetime.
Interactive workshops with performers Penny Arcade and Lefty Lucy are planned, as well as a symposium with this year’s institute scholars: Sharon Marie Carnicke, professor of critical studies at the University of Southern California School of Dramatic Arts; Gregory S. Carr, an instructor of speech and theater at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis; Felicia Hardison Londré, professor emeritus at the University of Missouri-Kansas City; and Rebecca Mark, a professor of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies at Rutgers University. Registration, which includes festival tickets, is $450 at twptown.org.
