key west art & historical society
Mar 5 2023 - 10:00am to Mar 26 2023 - 8:00pm

Internationally renowned playwright Tennessee Williams, who lived in Key West for more than 30 years, once said of his chosen home, “I work everywhere, but I work best here.” Fans of Williams’ classic plays can explore his writing and life in the island city. While the festival’s traditional receptions won’t take place because of coronavirus concerns, the schedule includes screenings of films adapted from Williams’ works, prose and poetry contests and an online program of readings and reminiscences. In addition, private tours of Key West’s Tennessee Williams Museum, located at 513 Truman Ave., are offered by appointment.
