National Theatre of Ghana's Ten Blocks on the Camino Real (National Building Museum)


The National Theatre of Ghana comes to Washington, DC for an outdoor marketplace production of Ten Blocks on the Camino Real by Tennessee Williams.

Ten Blocks is a one-act play that relates in songs, dialogue, and dance how the American hero Kilroy maintains his open heart in a grasping world, even after death. This production, to be performed in English, takes a West African perspective on Williams’ classic story of love and heroism, weaving in vibrant music and presented in an experiential marketplace setting that highlights the themes of political economy and social stratification at the heart of the play.


Ten Blocks is produced in partnership with the Shakespeare Theatre Company and Georgetown University.

Presented by The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics
