SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER

February 14 - March 8, 2015

A Play by TENNESSEE WILLIAMS

Directed by

ABE DANIELS

      Donette Swain – Mrs Venable           Analisa Pilecki – Catharine Holly         Vicki Montgomery - Mrs. Grace Holly      Cyrus Short - George Holly         Scott Cutler - Dr Cukrowicz              Joy Groves – Sister Felicity                     Lauren Gentry – Miss Foxhill

Catharine Holly, a poor relation of a prominent New Orleans family, seems to be insane after her cousin Sebastian dies under mysterious circumstances on a trip to Europe. Sebastian's mother, Violet Venable, trying to cloud the truth about her son's homosexuality and death, threatens to lobotomize Catharine for her incoherent utterances relating to Sebastian's demise. Under the influence of a truth serum, Catharine tells the gruesome story of Sebastian's death by cannibalism at the hands of locals whose sexual favors he sought, using Catharine as a device to attract the young men (as he had earlier used his mother). The play is considered one of Williams' starkest and most poetic works
