summer logoby Tennessee Williams
October 13 – November 5, 2017


Considered one of the most poetic – and shocking – plays of Tennessee Williams. A prominent New Orleans family is mourning the sudden death of its only son, Sebastian. The grief of his mother Violet is matched only by her determination to silence her niece Catharine – whose memories of Sebastian’s final days are so traumatic that she’s been committed to an asylum. If Violet has her way, the doctors will cut those memories out of Catharine’s brain forever.

“…Williams at the peak of his talent…his most devastating statement about corruption in the world.”  –New York Times
