Tennessee Williams aficionados will have the chance to view one of his lesser-known works in a rare Los Angeles production this summer. Williams’ most deeply felt emotions are fully realized in this savage, sexually-charged and brutally funny story about three outcasts trapped in an isolated, once elegant Mississippi farmhouse by an encroaching flood. Dying from tuberculosis and obsessed with memories of his late mother, “mama’s boy” Lot has returned home with his wife of 24 hours, the aging, down-on-her-luck showgirl, Myrtle. But Lot's return fuels a longstanding feud with his biracial half-brother, Chicken, over the ownership of the family estate. As the flood waters rise, Myrtle, at once frightened of and fascinated by the macho Chicken, is caught between his kitchen lair and the upstairs bedroom, where her new husband is fighting for breath and losing his tenuous hold on reality.
