Tennessee Williams was one of the true titans of live theater over the past century and Suddenly Last Summer is without question one of his most memorable works. Evoking themes of aging and beauty, hypocrisy, greed, sexual repression and cannibalism, the play is also the one that the author himself considered his most poetic. On a hot, steamy afternoon you’ll find Violet Venable and her niece Catherine waging battle in a war that will cement the legacy of Violet’s son Sebastian. Was he a brilliant artist, devoted son or sexual predator? Island City Stage is extremely excited and proud to be producing our first Tennessee Williams classic.
