Suddenly Last Summer by The Footlight Players

How far will a mother go to preserve her son's reputation? That's the question in "Suddenly Last Summer," considered one of Tennessee Williams' most haunting pieces of writing. Catharine Holly has witnessed the murder of her cousin Sebastian, which has sent her to a psychiatric hospital. When Sebastian's mother, Mrs. Venable, invites a psychiatrist to question Catharine about her story, she paints a picture so graphic it's almost unbelievable. In fact, Mrs. Venable would rather not believe Catherine's story and prefers to keep her son's secrets buried. This play is not suitable for children.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $27 for military/seniors and $20 for students.
