Tennessee Williams’ wrenching yet mordantly funny meditation on lost innocence and corruption reveals the dark consequences of the American search for perennial youth and fame. This steamy and haunting portrait of a fading movie star and the desperate silver-screen wannabe, Chance Wayne, evokes an era of repressive social strictures where love, sexual passion and redemption are thwarted. Williams’ theatrical language is thrilling, mesmerizing and quite beautiful!
