Night of the Iguana
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.
