An innocent young writer struggling with his own homosexuality has his eyes opened to the dark and desperate side of society when he moves into a 1930s New Orleans rooming house and meets its collection of ailing and eccentric residents. A fascinating bookend to Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning career, the famed playwright began writing this autobiographical play when he first moved to the French Quarter in 1938, but it wasn't completed and staged until 1977. This Raven Theatre revival highlights the poetic language and vivid characters that would echo throughout Williams' most famous works, including The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire.

About the Ticket Supplier: Raven Theatre
Raven Theatre's mission is to establish itself as an important voice in regional theater, focusing on American classics, as well as new and lesser-known projects that shed light on the "American Experience." The company's mission is realized by uniting an ensemble of Chicago-based theater artists from diverse disciplines who work together with the goal of maintaining a high standard of artistic excellence with programming easily accessible to patrons of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds, and thereby enriching our community's cultural life. Vigorously fresh revivals of masterpieces by great playwrights such as Miller, Williams, Saroyan and Mamet introduce new audiences to established classics, while original and lesser-known works give voice to the next generation of playwrights. Through Raven's Children's Theatre Program, the company seeks to present a wide range of theatrical education and entertainment options applicable across a broad academic spectrum.
