Synopsis

Tennessee Williams’ heart-wrenching drama examines the web of deceit holding a wealthy Southern family together while threatening to tear them apart. Over the course of one sultry Mississippi night, the characters’ gentility disappears as accusations of greed, sexual desire, and dishonesty, long repressed, come to the fore. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play (Williams’ self-proclaimed favorite) forces the audience and characters alike to determine what is truth, what is a lie, and which lies have become the truth.

“It confronts head-on the big issue of American drama: the conflict between the necessary truth and
the consoling lie.” – The Guardian, UK
