About this show

It centers on a fictionalized version of Williams who resides in the same condemned apartment building with a tongue-eating parasite and a brother and sister who eat nothing but canned cat food. The Times-Picayune said, "While sending up Tennessee and his penchant for poetic prose, shocking violence and hot-house sensuality, Tsarov also supplies those elements himself. His Williams 'voice' is evocatively valid, his main cannibalistic, sexual conceit carefully worked out, culminating in a carnal, horrific but quite logical conclusion." Tennessee Speaks in Tongues for You (Or the 3 1/2 Character Play) is presented as part of the 18th Annual Rhinoceros Theater Festival.
