About this show

Vieux Carre takes the audience on a haunting journey into the New Orleans French Quarter of the 1930's. This eerie tale conjures the ghosts of Tennessee Williams' past during the writer's early years living at the infamous boarding house on 722 Toulouse Street in the Quarter - the setting for the play. Destitute, dying, and drug addicted, each of the occupants of the Vieux Carre try to drag the naïve writer into his or her own tragic web. Doug Greene plays the young Tennessee Williams while also morphing into the persona of the older Williams in seamless transitions between action and narration. A meditation on loss and loneliness, Vieux Carre is also a love song to a New Orleans that will never be forgotten.
