Written by Tennessee Williams in 1947, Ten Blocks on the Camino Real is a one-act play that relates in songs, dialogue, and dance how the American hero Kilroy maintains his open heart in a grasping world, even after death.
This production, to be performed in English, takes a West African perspective on Williams’ classic story of love and heroism, weaving in vibrant music and presented in an experiential marketplace setting that highlights the themes of political economy and social stratification at the heart of the play.
