by Tennessee Williams

Directed by Grant Purdy

This exquisite show catapulted Tennessee Williams from obscurity to fame, winning the coveted New York Drama Critics' Circle Award in 1945.

While this play is rarely seen in community theatre, many will have enjoyed the Malthouse production in 2016. It has also been adapted for the cinema with probably the most compelling being directed by Paul Newman and starring Joanne Woodward and John Malkovich.

The Wingfields are one of theatre’s most iconic and heartbreakingly real families. For WTC, Grant Purdy has created a simple, haunting design for this classic and timeless family drama, full of humour and heartbreak. The story, fuelled by pity and duty, burdened by love and hate, is tempered by many moments of happiness and tenderness.

This is an exceptional play that will stay in your memory for ever. As with most WTC shows, this will sell out for most performances.
