Cock Tavern Celebrates Tennessee Williams

Productions of two never before seen works

Rosanna Hall

To celebrate Tennessee Williams’ 100th birthday Kilburn’s consistently exciting Cock Tavern Theatre has announced plans to stage two of the writer’s previously unperformed plays, I Never Get Dressed Till After Dark on Sundays and A Cavalier for Milady.

Hamish McDougall will direct I Never Get Dressed, a previously unpublished late work that was written in 1970 – just after Williams spent a spell in rehab. Set in New Orleans, the play focuses on the relationship between a playwright, an actor and a director.

Gene David Kirk, who recently directed an engaging revival of Williams’ rarely performed The Two-Character Play at Jermyn Street Theatre, will then direct A Cavalier for Milady, one of the playwright’s final written works, and as with so much of Williams’ writing, a portrait of his mother, sister and self.

I Never Get Dressed Till After Dark on Sundays runs from 1 – 26 March followed by A Cavalier for Milady, which will run from 29 March – 23 April 2011.
