Class Description

Brush up on your Southern drawl. Learn to improvise in the style of one of America’s greatest playwrights. Tennessee Williams was a master playwright of the twentieth century, and his plays A Streetcar Named Desire, The Glass Menagerie, and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof are considered among the finest of the American stage. His style permeates contemporary fiction and theater.

This one day workshop will be an intensive study of the basic themes that appear in Williams' work. We will explore playing epic emotions, lyrical intensity, haunting loneliness, poetic imagery. We will also expand on performing Williams' troubled woman, men with secrets, messed up families, southern drawls, and sexual tension mixed with lies and mendacities.

About the Instructor, Randy Dixon:

"On top of being an art form, improvisation is a force for good encouraging people to listen, cooperate, and stimulate their imagination, their creativity and their generosity without imposing some kind of ideology on them. This force needs to be spread, and I believe Randy Dixon deserves to be at the core of this venture."
