VIEUX CARR by Tennessee Williams


The King's Head Theatre is delighted to present the first London revival of Tennessee Williams' autobiographical play about an aspiring young writer, and the bizarre, poignant and funny characters he encounters at a New Orleans boarding house.

PREVIEW TICKETS ONLY 10! (10 - 13 July)

Written with his characteristic passion and compassion for the damaged and dispossessed, Vieux Carr is in many ways the condensation of all Williams' plays, yet it is unique in its depiction of his loneliness, despair and longing for something new. Many of his other great plays delve into his mothers story, or the events of his sister Rose's tragic life this one is a search for Williams own truth as he tried to understand it.

Stripped bare of the huge sets and endless scene changes that have dwarfed previous productions, the inmates of 722 Toulouse Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans will come into dazzlingly sharp focus. In the intimate confines of the King's Head, this production offers a thrilling opportunity to re-engage with one of the most influential and inspirational voices of 20th century theatres last great masterpiece.
