Baby Doll by Tennessee Williams
Friday 21 June 2019 to Saturday 16 November 2019 (DAILY event)
Heat and desire sizzle in every line of Tennessee Williams’ Deep South tale of lust, jealousy and betrayal.
Down-on-his-luck Archie Lee is obsessed with his young bride, Baby Doll, but Baby is keeping her husband on a long leash. When the neighbouring cotton gin is burnt to the ground, dangerously charismatic Silva Vacarro pays them a visit, suspicious that Archie is to blame. In the steamy hours that follow, power and passion come irresistibly to the fore as a game of truth or dare plays out.
Peppered with wry humour and sultry comedy, this brand new adaptation by Pierre Laville and Emily Mann breathes fresh life into a beautifully crafted tale by one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century.
