About this show

The Vagabond Players presents Suddenly Last Summer by Tennesse Williams. What really happened last summer? Mrs. Venable, Sebastian's mother, knows--or is it that she reveals only what she needs to be the truth? Catherine knows--but Mrs. Venable is making every effort to be sure that that truth never comes to light and that the girl who stole her son's affections pays dearly for that crime. Catherine must be silenced. In the stifling beat of a New Orleans garden, an emotional power struggle emerges, a struggle far more deadly than the onset of a summer thunderstorm. Heralded as Williams most poetic play, Suddenly Last Summer exposes the horror of how human beings use one another to get what they need, or rather, what they want.
