In commemoration of Tennessee Williams’ 100th birthday, WHTC will present a revival of Suddenly Last Summer at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Chelsea from Sept. 16-Oct. 2nd, 2011. Considered a challenging Williams masterwork—this grotesque “moral fable”, set in the Garden District of New Orleans, seeks to unearth the truth behind what happened last summer to Mrs. Venable’s son Sebastian. Catharine, Sebastian’s cousin, has painted a scandalous account. In an attempt to silence Catharine forever, Mrs. Venable tries to convince a doctor that Catharine is disturbed and in need of a lobotomy. The doctor must decide if Catharine is telling the truth. Regarded as one of his most autobiographical works, Suddenly Last Summer raises bold questions about mental illness, sexuality and desire in its unyielding quest for the truth — no matter how brutal.
