The Night of the Iguana
2007-2008 Season: November 8 - November 18
By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Steve Snyder
Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tennessee Williams’s The Night of the Iguana, one of the most daring, unflinching honest, and provocative plays of the American stage, probes the turbulent emotional and sexual forces at play in the politics of human relationships in contrast to a man’s deeply personal spiritual battles. Against the ominous backdrop of a furious storm and the rise of Nazism, Williams masterfully examines four wandering souls—a defrocked minister, a lustful widow, a free-spirited artist, and “the oldest living and practicing poet”—as they are thrown together in a desolate Mexican hotel where they experience moments of compassion and despair that offer the possibility of redemption and healing.
