About this show

This is the Los Angeles revival of Tennessee Williams' rarely-produced black comedy. Flora Goforth, immensely wealthy and outrageous and living high atop her secure Italian villa overlooking the Mediterranean and the Divina Costiera, dictates her memoirs to her secretary, Blackie, when they are disrupted by the violent and mysterious arrival of a handsome and charismatic poet. Mrs. Goforth decides she wants him as a lover, but he's there for other reasons. When they are visited by the Witch of Capri, the Marchesa Constance Ridgeway-Condotti, the true identity of the poet is revealed: He is known as the "Angel of Death."
