Tennessee Williams's The Night of the Iguana has been called the ''last masterpiece by one of America's greatest and most powerful playwrights.'' Chronicling the struggles of Lawrence Shannon, a former Episcopal priest who's been ousted from his church for inappropriate conduct, Iguana is set in the 1940s. Recently accused of statutory rape and on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Shannon has stranded a busload of tourists in a small Mexican town, desperate to find some way out of his downward spiral. Mimi Holloway directs.
