Kingdom of the Earth @ Triad Stage

A Southern Gothic
by Tennessee Williams
directed by Preston Lane

Torn between two brothers.

Williams’ rarely-seen masterpiece is a battle of wills and a race against the inevitable. With little time left, young Lot returns to the Mississippi Delta to reclaim his ancestral home just as rising storm waters are about to consume it. He arrives with his new bride, Myrtle, and the all-consuming memories of his late mother. Caught up in her own romantic fantasies and the hope of a happy life, Myrtle soon discovers that Lot only married her to keep the property from its long-time caretaker, his embittered half-brother, Chicken. As the rain falls and the river threatens to flood the land, the three engage in a brutal, comic and intensely shocking power play for possession of all they’ve ever known.

This production is recommended for mature audiences.
