AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATH OF QUEENS
Directed by Ricky Graham
AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATH OF QUEENS showcases barely contained desires and passions that erupt during a fateful Mardi Gras holiday. Candy, a successful drag queen, picks up a rough sailor and spoils him with money and attention. When he leaves her suddenly, it’s up to the two queens who live upstairs to offer consolation.

THE TWO CHARACTER PLAY
Directed by Austin Pendleton
In association with Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company
A brother-and-sister team of touring actors are abandoned in an isolated theatre by their troupe to face an unknown audience. Williams’ fugue of a play brilliantly intertwines fantasy and reality as the two enact an illusion within an illusion and come to face the darkest truths about themselves. Tennessee Williams called THE TWO-CHARACTER PLAY his “most beautiful” play since A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Irene Glezos (Big Easy nomination for her turn as “Lady” in ORPHEUS DESCENDING) returns to Southern Rep opposite Joseph W. Rodriguez.
