By Tennessee Williams. Directed by Rebecca Frecknall.
In Glorious Hill, Mississippi, Alma Winemiller has found herself trapped in the role of repressed and 'affected' daughter of the town minister. Hemmed in by her malicious mother, neighbourhood gossips and her own moral standings, Alma longs to escape her life of duty. But on the 4th July 1916 her world is to be turned upside down by the return of her childhood obsession, the young doctor Buchanan, who represents everything Alma is against – and everything she desires.
