Over the course of one sultry evening, a prominent Southern family is pushed to the brink when tender memories are relived and life-altering secrets are revealed. Wealthy plantation owner Big Daddy's family has gathered to celebrate his 65th birthday, while sparing him the news that he's dying of cancer. As one son, a former football hero, mysteriously retreats from his desirable but sexually frustrated wife, his money-hungry brother and sister-in-law plot to secure more than their fair share of the family fortune. This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by American icon Tennessee Williams sizzles with passion and greed. Learn More

A play with a huge heart, not afraid to show emotion, sentiment, after all the essence of life. Fine actors, excellent stage direction, not too loud, not too soft. A happy medium. A show that I highly recommend that is balm to one's soul.
It’s a birthday party nobody will forget! In this engaging comedy, Abuela, the matriarch of a Cuban-exile family living in Miami in 1974, is turning 75. Much-married Maritza and her teenage daughter, Marty, have driven in from Texas. Live-at-home single son, Tio, hopes everything will go smoothly. However, as the punch flows, the sky turns stormy and Eric, the handsome gardener, arrives, the party unravels. Meanwhile, Alexandros, Abuela’s bad-tempered pooch, becomes the catalyst for an emotional meltdown in which closet doors open, truths tumble out and the bonds of family love are reasserted. Alexandros is by the author Sonia Flew_, which was staged at The Laguna Playhouse during the 2006-2007 season. _
