Something Cloudy, Something Clear, directed by Cosmin Chivu, is presented by the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown, September 22-25, 2011.
Something Cloudy was the last New York production of a Tennessee Williams play during his lifetime. It is a mature work, reflecting on his life in double exposure: stylistically daring, leaping in time between 1940 and 1980, peopled with ghosts. The cataract in Williams' left eye becomes a metaphor. One eye is clouded by nostalgia, guilt, and regret, the other sharply focused by a frank unsentimentality. Life becomes a series of necessary compromises -- where poetry, artistic integrity and deep longing are weighed against sex-for-hire, potential violence, and endless negotiation of terms -- for survival.
Directed by Cosmin Chivu of New York’s InterArt Group, the production will feature a team of seven exceptional actors led by the Tony-nominated actor Lou Liberatore (Burn This, and As Is on Broadway). Set design by Anka Lupes
Consultant for this production is Thomas Keith, Williams’ editor at New Directions Publishing.
