 Orpheus Descending  Buy Tickets Online


By Tennessee Williams 

Sept 30-Oct 5, 2010


 
 
A guitar playing drifter comes in off the highway into a small Southern town.  He's handsome, sexy, and mysterious.  When he enters the dry goods store, he's also a fox in a chicken coop.   In a town marked by conformity, gossip, and violence, this modern-day Orpheus may not have descended into Hades to find a wife, but offers the prospect of a new life for the shopkeeper.  He awakens passion, love, and freedom.  He also shows us how to live bravely and honestly - even though it can bring tragic consequences.
