Tennessee Williams

Tennessee Williams' 'The Eccentricities of a Nightingale' at Aurora Theatre

Tennessee Williams - who brought us Blanche DuBois, and therefore Marlon Brando yelling about Blanche DuBois in a rain-soaked t-shirt (thank you, silver screen) - is celebrating his 100th birthday. Or would be, if he was still alive. Since he's not, Aurora Theatre in Berkeley is doing it for him, by staging a production of The Eccentricities of a Nightingale, a haunting and rarely-produced play about a lonely woman living in pre-World War I Mississippi.
