‘Small Craft’ a Big Deal

Tennesseewilliams2 The White Horse Theater Company will present a limited engagement of Tennessee Williams’ rarely produced Small Craft Warnings Sept. 19–Oct. 5 at the WorkShop Theater Company, 312 West 36th St., 4th floor, between Eighth and Ninth avenues.

The Sept. 21 performance will be followed by a discussion with Williams scholars Annette J. Saddik and Thomas Keith.

The play, set in a seaside bar on the coast of Southern California in the early 1970s, offers a glimpse into the lives of the regulars who inhabit the bar as refuge from the storm of life.

Williams himself took over the role of the alcoholic doctor during the play’s original 1972 Off-Broadway engagement, which at a little more than three months proved to be the longest run for any Williams work written after 1961’s The Night of the Iguana.

Cyndy A. Marion will direct. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at www.smarttix.com or (212) 868-4444.
