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
