a “Gothic comedy” by Tennessee Williams
Fountain Theatre celebrates the centennial of Williams’s birth
with the West Coast premiere of his final play


WHAT: “A House Not Meant To Stand” The Fountain Theatre celebrates the centennial of Tennessee Williams’s birth with the presentation of his final play, never before seen on the West Coast. This turbo-charged tragicomedy about the blazingly dysfunctional McCorkle family—which Williams called a “Southern Gothic spook sonata”— is searing, savage and hilarious.
