In the Bar of a Tokyo Hotel
Tennessee Williams wrote some of todays famous American plays A Streetcar Named Desire, The Glass Menagerie and Suddenly Last Summer. He also wrote some less famous, though equally hard-hitting, plays, including In the Bar of a Tokyo Hotel. In Bar, Williams reveals a married couple, rich and famous and desperately unhappy. Both of them are unsatisfied with their lives, but neither has a clue what to do about it. A painter, the husband hides in his hotel room plotting a way to make his mark on the art world. The wife, a fading beauty, sits in the hotel bar, hoping to attract some attention. Vanity and lust almost drip from the pair, and Williams gives them no easy outs. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Through March 28. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury Lane. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.countryplayhouse.org. $12.
