Through May 21st, the Tennessee Williams Festival is presenting Will Mr. Merriweather Return from Memphis?, a wildly eccentric 1969 mélange of the playwright's trademark poetic realism, loopy surrealism, and hokey comedy.

The Tennessee Williams festival is the big news this weekend, but there's also a classical comedy at Clayton Community Theatre that's relevant all over again. As always, the choices are purely my personal opinion. Take with a grain (or a shaker) of salt.
