In 1992, Erma Duricko conceived and directed 4 x Tenn, an evening of one-act plays and poetry by Tennessee Williams. The Lady of Larkspur Lotion was transferred to the New Orleans/Tennessee Williams Literary Festival that same year, sharing billing withEli Wallach, Anne Jackson and Edward Albee. From these auspicious beginnings and a shared passion for Tennessee Williams' work, Erma and five members of the production - Tim Brown, Dominic Comperatore, Kathleen Gilotti, Megan Smith, and Tom Wolfe - chose to further this collaboration. 4-Tenn Productions was established. In aspiring to our vision of an international production company, we've accomplished the following since our inception:

In the coming Millenium we will continue our close
relationship with the Delta Tennessee Williams'
Festival - an event that we believe is essential to our
love and understanding of the South and
Tennessee's World.

We will actively build our core membership and
continue to embrace artists that discover us
through Tennessee's work.

We will continue to seek grants, producers and hold
events to allow us to produce new works, readings and
full productions in New York and
It is our goal to build a community of artists that will
thrive in accordance with the principles put forth in our
mission statement.
It is our dream to establish a permanent theatre in New
York City that will champion the fearless romantics
that we have discovered in Tennessee Williams' vision
and in life.
