Suddenly Last Summer, by Tennessee Williams, directed by Mike Davies

27 - 30 March 2019, Studio 1.

This is a classic American play by Tennessee Williams. In 1959 it became an Oscar-winning film starring Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn and Montgomery Clift.

In her New Orleans mansion, the wealthy and reclusive Violet Venable grieves over the sudden death of her beloved son, Sebastian. Only her niece Catherine knows the truth about what really happened last summer and is traumatised by it. Her story is not one Mrs Venable wants to hear, but how far will she go to silence Catherine? Will money and medicine buy better memories? The truth, it seems, is dangerous for them both.
