10 Blocks on the Camino Real
Theatre - Performance
Friday, September 29, 2017
5:30 PM-7:00 PM
The National Theatre of Ghana presents, in association with the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival, "10 Blocks on the Camino Real" by Tennessee Williams. Directed by David Kaplan and performed by Abibigromma, the national drama company of Ghana, the 1947 one-act play, which eventually became Williams’ full-length drama Camino Real in 1953, is a thrilling phantasmagoria about a big-hearted hero lost in a ruthless world. It’s the story of Kilroy, a boxer with a “heart as big as the head of a baby,” who falls in love with a Gypsy’s daughter – and remains faithful even after death.
The big-hearted production, which brings vibrant music and West African flair to Williams’ story of love and heroism, toured marketplaces and outdoor venues in Accra in April 2016, and continues to tour throughout Ghana. Performed in English, the 75-minute show retains Williams' text, yet resonates with Ghanaian culture.
A FREE and open to the public performance will be held on the Common on Friday, September 29th at 5:30pm (Rain location: Hanover Theatre Conservatory). Please bring your own chairs for the performance.
