Awarded Best Play in 1945 by the New York Drama Critics' Circle and acclaimed as Williams's first great Broadway success, this emotionally devastating portrait of hope is a memory of Saint Louis during the 1930s. Aspiring poet Tom Wingfield reluctantly works in a warehouse to support his overbearing mother and debilitatingly shy sister, Laura. Pushed by his mother, he finds Laura a gentleman caller to try to coax her from her fragile private world. Don't miss this beautifully reimagined modern classic from award-winning director Jasson Minadakis (2010 San Francisco Bay Area Theater Critics Award for Director, Equivocation).
Celebrate the centennial of Tennessee Williams' birth with MTC. We have long had a relationship with the seminal American playwright, not only producing his ubiquitous A Streetcar Named Desire recently, but also posthumously premiering Fugitive Kind and Spring Storm.
