How far will a mother go to preserve her son’s reputation? Considered one of Tennessee Williams’ most haunting pieces of writing, this play opened off Broadway on Jan. 7, 1958.
Catharine Holly has witnessed the murder of her cousin Sebastian, which has sent her to a psychiatric hospital. When Sebastian’s mother, Mrs. Venable, invites a psychiatrist to question Catharine about her story, she paints a picture so graphic it’s almost unbelievable. In fact, Mrs. Venable would rather not believe Catherine’s story and prefers to keep her son’s secrets buried.
