The evening of March 19 witnessed a highlight night of the annual Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival with the performance of Hotel Plays, an exclusive event featuring the production of four of Williams’ acclaimed short plays – Green Eyes, The Traveling Companion, Mister Paradise and The Lady of Larkspur Lotion – all of which received great acclaim from local critics. With each play performed in a different room of the unique and historic Hermann-Grima House, guests enjoyed a unique experience with some of the esteemed author’s best work.

This year’s festival performance employed the talents of New Orleans thespians such as Jaimi Paige, Matt Rein, Jeremy Lawrence, Matt Story, Francesca McKenzie and more. Catered by Broussard’s Restaurant, the evening served as a kick-off for the rest of the festival, the 28th of its kind, dedicated to honoring the life and memory of the acclaimed author who considered New Orleans his spiritual home. Funds raised went to producing and presenting the educational, theatrical, literary and musical events of the annually held Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival.
