These two recently discovered short plays by Tennessee Williams tell two very different stories about the extremes of love and desire.

In Green Eyes, a young couple are spending their honeymoon in a hotel in New Orleans’ French Quarter, when they wake up one morning to find the young bride’s body covered with mysterious bruises. Her husband, on leave from Vietnam is enraged and blinded with jealously. As they fight it becomes clear that the bruises are no mystery at all.

The Parade transports the audience to beach, as it presents a portrait of unrequited passions, compassion and friendships. This play is believed to be autobiographical and explores a world where gay men were socially permitted to fully express their feelings.

Duration: 1 hour 10mins with no interval

  • Three Sisters

    Tue 29 Oct - Sat 2 Nov

    Three Sisters is a play of thwarted potential. The sisters are elemental, glorious, bird-like creations who are ground down by their exile from Moscow. In the country, they grow old and dream of their hometown. Chekhov is an ever popular cornerstone of the canon. A contemporary of his attributed this popularity to Chekhov’s ‘rejection of what we may call the heroic values’. The young wom...
