About this show

The Night of the Iguana is set during 1940 in Mexico, where an American widow endeavors to keep both her tropical hotel and her love life intact. Her guests include the defrocked Reverend Shannon, desperately struggling with addictions to alcohol and young women; the ethereal yet penniless artist Hannah Jelkes; her grandfather Nonno, "the oldest living and practicing poet;" a family of boisterous Germans; and a difficult busload of Baptist women. This Tony Award-winning play by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Tennessee Williams is a provocative exploration of human struggle and passion -- full of intense drama, biting wit, and sexual tension.
