WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tennessee Williams' unproduced screenplay is strikingly re-imagined for the stage by Moisés Kaufman, the acclaimed director of the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning I Am My Own Wife and the international phenomenon The Laramie Project. Ollie, a military boxer whose arm is lost in a car accident, turns to a life of hustling in Williams' revealing and personal tale that was never produced in his lifetime. Bear witness to the daring poetry of Williams and the bold theatrical vision of Kaufman as they transport the audience from the streets of New Orleans to a yacht in the Florida Keys to a harsh prison in New Orleans. One Arm will startle, seduce, and fascinate as it journeys through an erotic fever dream of an American nightmare.
