THE ACTING COMPANY Presents

REMEMBER US TO TOM: Letters to and from Tennessee Williams
Directed by MICHAEL WILSON
With MEGAN BARTLE, JULIET BRETT, LIV ROOTH, JOHN SKELLEY, CHRIS THORN, and AUDREY WOOD
In a very special event, newly-discovered, intimate letters from Tennessee Williams and some of his legendary family and friends will be presented for the first time in a staged reading by several members of The Acting Company's cast of Desire.

A dramatist and poet, Williams was also a reporter, chronicling the stories behind the headlines of the human soul --his eye ever alert to the details and rhythms of everyday life. Remember Us To Tom includes many of these details: the comings and goings of a family of five, in good times and bad, needing each other, using each other, loving each other ... as they head for the second act curtain.

Helmed by noted Broadway and Tennessee Williams director Michael Wilson, the evening features Juliet Brett as Rose Williams, John Skelley as Dakin Williams, Megan Bartle as sister-in-law Joyce, Liv Rooth as Tennessee's longtime agent Audrey Wood and Chris Thorn as Tom "Tennessee" Williams.

Following the hour-long performance, Francesca Williams, Tennessee's niece as well as a veteran screenwriter, and Washington University Professor Richard Chapman will share how the treasured letters and memorabilia were discovered earlier this year.
