The Crawford Family Forum 474 South Raymond Avenue Pasadena, CA 91105 Map and directions

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. Please email Forum Coordinator Jenny Smith at if you have any questions.

In partnership with KPCC, A Noise Within presents a staged reading of Tennessee Williams’ "The Eccentricities of a Nightingale."

Oh, to simply fit in! Trapped in the cultural suffocation of a backwater Mississippi hamlet, Alma Winemiller struggles to dim the unique glow of her soul. Blessed (or cursed) with a lyric sense of being, she bears a heavy cross of unrequited, unattainable love for the boy next door. Without a protector her exquisite individuality is left vulnerable to the destructive forces of small-town intolerance in American Master Tennessee Williams' ode to fragile beauty.

ADMISSION IS FREE, but RSVPs are required. Reservations will be available on Monday, March 21st.

6:30pm - Doors Open
7:00pm - Reading
