"A MAJOR PERFORMANCE. Lawrence inhabits the role of the aging playwright wittily and wondrously. He is WILDLY FUNNY, AUTHENTICALLY MOVING, and his rapport with the audience is a marvel.”
— David Cuthbert, New Orleans’ Times Picayune

Everyone Expects Me To Write
Another "Streetcar"

“Laughter has always been my substitute for lamentation”, Williams wrote. In EVERYONE EXPECTS we find Tennessee entertaining his audience as he talks about his battle with the critics over his attempt to explore new forms when conventional ones could no longer contain “the mad music of his characters”. The conversation expands to include his coming out and his breakdown, climaxing in the reading of the poem “What’s Next on the Agenda, Mr. Williams?” And we are assured that the agenda is still very full with a lot more to come.

The show had its premiere as a benefit performance for the Abingdon Theatre 3-25-07.
