A haunting spell that is virtually hypnotic in  its compelling power”.

A handsome poet has died under mysterious circumstances, and only the beautiful young woman who was there knows the shocking and terrible truth of what happened.  Will she tell her story no matter the consequences, or succumb to the pressure to protect the legacy of an influential and powerful family?  This is one of Tennessee Williams’ most poetic, sensual and evocative works. 

Reserve your seats by calling Alayna George at 203.227.5137 ext 116 or emailing events@westportplayhouse.org.  Premier seating will be held for advanced reservations made by Wednesday, August 24.
