Summer and Smoke by Tennessee Williams

"Summer and Smoke is set in Glorious Hill, Mississippi in 1916, and centers on reserved Alma Winemiller, the reverend’s unmarried daughter, who is in love with her childhood friend, the young Dionysian rebel Dr. John Buchanan, Jr.

They are opposites in this allegory of soul and body. “Isn’t it funny,” John tells Alma: “I’m more afraid of your soul than you’re afraid of my body.”

It is a character driven play that explores the need to resolve the light and dark sides of our humanity in order to achieve completeness." Mary-Ellen Perley, Director, Summer and Smoke

    Funny, cheeky (kept thinking of Maria), and quite moving. Lead characters were like ships passing each in the night...the lead actress that plays Alma was mesmerizing. Within the Southern Belle exterior is a strength of character like Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind. I'd see this one again...6 stars!

    I went to see the show this evening, and it was terrific. So much fun, and even--dare I say it--cheeky at times. Have fun tomorrow!

    Happy Tuesday everyone! Friday's event has gotten quite popular in the last week. Would someone be willing to help co-host with me? It's nice to have an extra person on hosting duties with such a big (and I'm sure lively) crowd. You can post a note here or send a private email through Meetup. Cheers:)
