Tennessee Rising is a new solo play written and performed by Jacob Storms. Directed by Alan Cumming.

Tennessee Rising: The Dawn of Tennessee Williams* (United Solo Award) sheds light on the unexplored early years (1939-1945) of young Williams. The world is on the brink of world war II and a young writer named Tom has finally escaped the family home only to be confronted with the harsh realities of life. To get ahead, he creates a new character for himself to play, Tennessee Williams, and so begins his meandering journey wherein we meet the people in his life who will go on to inspire his most iconic characters all while young Williams grapples with first love, professional triumph and torment, heartbreak, and ultimately "the catastrophe of success." If you thought you knew Tennessee Williams, think again!
