Ten Blocks on the Camino Real 

When: Fri., Sept. 8, 10 a.m. & 12:30 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 10, 1 & 3 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission
Kilroy is an ex-boxer who wakes up in unfamiliar territory. He's here on the edge of nothingness, which is populated by such well-known strangers as Lord Byron, Casanova, Don Quixote and Esmerelda, the gypsy dancer from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. A series of ten short scenes plays out, many of them with songs and dances, driven by the dream-like qualities of a mystery play. Tennessee Williams' short play Ten Blocks on the Camino Real is an allegorical exploration of what happens when you age out of your fame and fall out of step with the larger world. Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis brings the National Theatre of Ghana to town to presents its version of the show at a series of free public performances Friday through Sunday (September 8 to 10). You can catch it at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Friday at Strauss Park (Washington and North Grand boulevards); 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Soulard Farmers Market (730 Carroll Street); and 1 and 3 p.m. Sunday at Strauss Park again. Visit for more information.
