“My sister was a much more vital person than Laura. Terribly vital,” Tennessee once wrote. In this new one-man piece by Jeremy Lawrence based on Williams’ works and words, Rose emerges not as the victim but as the life force who was at the very center of so much of Tennessee’s work as Tennessee follows his thoughts into the various incarnations of the great love of his life whose candle would never blow out. Presented by special arrangement with The University of the South (Sewanee, Tennessee). Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/raf-stl/twstl_tom-and-rose Running time: approx. 50 minutes
