Director Lucy Bailey examines the American deep South in Tennessee Williams’ controversial play Baby Doll. Made famous by the 1956 Kazan film denounced by Cardinal Spellman, the play revolves around Archie Lee’s 19-year-old virgin bride Baby Doll who has vowed to abstain from sex until her 20th birthday. Tenderness and passion give way to bigotry and corruption as Archie takes on his Sicilian rival. This critically acclaimed production is presented in collaboration with Birmingham Repertory.
