The Clare

“Such a lot of words. You’ve thrown me the dictionary. All you needed to say was that you’re lonesome. Plain old lonesomeness, that’s what’s the matter with you!”

Three riveting stories of misplaced identity and sexual repression reveal the tragic consequences of isolation.

Don’t miss these rarely performed Tennessee Williams one-act plays: Summer at the Lake, Auto-da-Fe and The Strangest Kind of Romance, directed by 2015 Genesis Future Directors Award winner Finn Beames.
