“It was a one-piece suit made of white lisle, the water made it transparent! I didn’t want to swim in it, but he’d grab my hand and drag me into the water, all the way in, and I’d come out looking naked… Don’t you understand? I was procuring for him!”
In an overgrown garden in New Orleans, Mrs. Venable tries to preserve the wholesome memory of her dead son Sebastian, but first she must overcome her niece Catherine who has been spreading a markedly different tale of Sebastian’s violent end. Mrs. Venable is relentless and will stop at nothing to silence the girl who dares to tarnish her son’s name. The incomparable Les Waters (Big Love) returns to direct Suddenly Last Summer, easily one of Williams’ most savage and explosively theatrical dramas.
