Description

Loneliness, sexual tension and the need for human kindness pervade these three plays by Tennessee Williams, as their characters rage against personal demons and the modern world. In ‘Sweet Bird of Youth’, a drifter, Chance Wayne, returns to his home town with an ageing movie actress in search of the girl he loved in his youth, but with terrible, violent results. ‘Period of Adjustment’ tells the story of two young newlyweds who visit the husband’s old army friend on Christmas Eve after unsuccessfully consummating their marriage, and unleash forbidden passion, while in ‘The Night of the Iguana’ a diverse group of people, including a disturbed ex-minister and a troubled spinster, are thrown together in an isolated Mexican hotel for one eventful night.
