FLORIDA - Tennessee Williams Birthday Events to Recall Late Playwright in Key West

KEY WEST, Florida Keys — Tennessee Williams first visited Key West in 1941, subsequently buying a house where he resided until his death in 1983. Fans of the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright can celebrate his legacy Feb. 28 through April 9 with cultural and creative events on the island he called home.

Highlights are to include a March 26 “birthday party” recognizing the 107th anniversary of Williams’ birth, film screenings and play presentations, contests for writers and artists, a poetry reading and curator-led tours of the Tennessee Williams Museum at 513 Truman Ave.

During his residence in Key West, Williams completed “Summer and Smoke” and wrote “Night of the Iguana” among other works. The Academy Award–winningfilm adaptation of his play, “The Rose Tattoo,” was shot on the island in 1954.
