Four of the five one acts in Five by Tenn were found several years ago by scholars Nick Moschovakis and David Roessel in Austin while doing research for an edition of Williams’ collected poems. Moschovakis and Roessel brought the plays, along with a dozen others, to director Michael Kahn’s attention, and Kahn found Summer at the Lake, And Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens, The Fat Man’s Wife and Adam and Eve on a Ferry especially stageworthy. Presented with the Williams gem, I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow, they comprise Five by Tenn.
