By *Tennessee** Williams*
Directed by Kevin Hagan
Featuring Ensemble Members
Linda Reiter, Eileen Niccolai and Brian McCaskill
In the wildly overgrown garden of a New Orleans mansion, a family seeks the truth about the life and death of one of their own. After Sebastian Venable’s mysterious death abroad, his mother Violet calls on her niece Catharine-the family misfit and sole witness to the incident-to reveal what happened that day. Catharine, who seemed to go insane following the death of her cousin, has been institutionalized since her return for insisting on a version of events so horrific that it can’t possibly be true. Set on preserving Sebastian’s memory-and erasing her own role in the unspeakable acts that led to his demise-Mrs. Venable will go to any length to discredit Catharine’s account. But when Catharine is put under the influence of truth serum, everyone must come to terms with the reality of the long-buried secrets that are finally brought to light.
