From the words and works of Tennessee Williams Arranged and performed by Jeremy Lawrence Cornelius Coffin Williams (C.C. as his cronies called him) famously referred to his son as “Miss Nancy.” Theirs was an uneasy relationship at best and yet in The Glass Menagerie, Williams idealized the absent father as “the man who fell in love with long distance.” And late in his life Williams said his father’s story. This newest piece created by Jeremy Lawrence in the playwright’s words captures a son’s struggle to love the unloveable man who was his father. Presented by special arrangement with The University of the South (Sewanee, Tennessee).
