“I want what I’m afraid of and I’m afraid of what I want, so that I’m like a storm inside that can’t break loose…”
Spring, 1937. In a small town in Mississippi, a storm is brewing.
Heavenly is the girl that all the boys want – none more so than the rich and refined Arthur Shannon. But she is in love with the rough Dick Miles, who wants to leave town and work on the river. Can she reconcile her sensual yearnings with her social duties?
Tennessee Williams‘ Spring Storm is a Deep South tale of adolescent rites of passage. Anticipating the tragic belles and lyrical poetry of his later writing, including The Glass Menagerie, it signals the arrival of one of the great dramatists of the American theatre.
For this production, playing for just 3 performances only, Arcola Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen directs talented young actors from the East 15 Acting School.
