Freaks of the Cosmic Circus
Tennessee Williams called his few months living in Laguna Beach in 1939, “the happiest and healthiest and most radiant time of my life.” It also was the first time that the young writer confronted his homosexuality. Freaks of the Cosmic Circus explores this critical time in Tennessee Williams’ life, as he wrestled with his identity as an artist and a man. It is a coming-of-age story inspired by the memoir, notebooks and letters of one of America’s most beloved writers.

"A beautiful and poetic play to take the shame right out of a person and free us all from our own darkness. Tennessee Williams is such an inspiring subject, and his coming of age is more than worthy as drama." -- playwright Emma Goldman-Sherman
