Mortal Ladies Possessed

Adapted from the short stories of Tennessee Williams by Matthew Hurt

One of the greatest playwrights of the twentieth century, Tennessee Williams is famous for his sensual and lyrical plays such as A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie - often centred around fascinating women. His short stories bear all the trademark qualities of the plays. They focus on characters pushed to the edge. Ladies full of desire, full of life - sometimes powerful, always desperate. In Mortal Ladies Possessed,Tennessee's wild and evocative stories have been adapted for the stage by Matthew Hurt; all the rage and passion that appears in his prose creations has been brought to life in this theatrical re-imagining of Tennessee's masterpieces. Sometimes haunting, often hilarious, the many characters are brought to life in Linda Marlowe's unique physical style in her new solo show.
