About this show

At 722 Toulouse Street, in the Vieux Carré district of New Orleans, Mrs. Wire runs her dilapidated boarding house. She and her tenants, forgotten runaways from the world, struggle to find peace and meaning in an existence both absurd and heartbreaking. Helmed by Austin Pendelton, the Tony® nominated director who brought Pearl audiences the critically acclaimed production of Toys in the Attic in 2007, Vieux Carré is Tennessee Williams' shadowy meditation on sexuality, decay, and the awful power of loneliness. It stands as the most autobiographical of his late plays: his last attempt to find hope for and give voice to those he dubbed the "fugitive kind."
