    Vieux Carré

    Vieux Carré is an autobiographical play set in a seedy boarding house in New Orleans, 1938. Through the evocative memories of the young Writer, the portraits of the Vieux Carré’s struggling tenants are sharply etched. The action first focuses on the Writer being seducted by Nightingale, a tubercular painter, and then probes into the fateful desire of a young woman for her stud—she in the throes of a secret illness and he torn between his debt to her and his urge to escape the consequences of her condition. The other inhabitants’ stories are also intertwined through their poverty, loneliness, dreams and despair. The play is an often brutally candid and sometimes delicately poetic education of the artist, the misfit and the dreamer.

    Written by Tennessee Williams
    Directed by Andrea Southwick
