More Stars Than There Are In Heaven  by John Guare

John Guare’s laugh-out-loud new play is an adaptation of a Tennessee Williams short story. Don’t miss the rare chance to share in the developing work from one of the world’s best-known playwrights.
directed by Cosmin Chivu

“Eclecticism has always been essential to Mr. Guare’s writing, 
which at its best juggles mismatched elements of culture, high and low, 
with daring and dizzying skill.”
– New York Times 
John Guare, the author of Six Degrees of Separation and The House of Blue Leaves, has written a new play based on the Tennessee Williams short story “The Mattress by the Tomato Patch.”The story and the play are biographical, exposing a time in the young writer’s life when Tennessee Williams was toiling for MGM while learning about life from his Marxist land-lady, Zola. ZOLA: You want to know what paradise taste like? Bite into this tomato. 
Juice runs down your throat. Seeds run out your mouth. 
God put no apple in Garden of Eden. God hung tomato from Tree of Life! 
Eve not be had for price of stinking apple. Cosmin Chivu directed a well-received production of The Mutilated with Mink Stole and Penny Arcade for the 2013 Festival, as well as a moving version of Something Cloudy, Something Clear featuring Lou Liberatore, performed in a tent on a Provincetown beach in 2011. “Naturalism is great for television and the small screen. 

Theatrical reality happens on a much higher plane.”
– John Guare in the Paris Review, 1992
