Lady is trapped in a loveless marriage, surrounded by intolerant people, living a boring small-town life. But when a wild-eyed charismatic drifter appears, a new life of love and passion suddenly seem possible. Everything will change as certainty, conformity and tradition are ripped apart. Orpheus Descending is a classic Tennessee Williams piece of writing.
It is one of his lesser known plays but one of the heaviest in themes and symbolism. This production will be directed by Marcus Marsh, Associate Director at Stockwell Playhouse and Artistic Director of Blueleaf Theatre.
This amateur production of “Orpheus Descending” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
