On the Evjue Stage
In Tennessee Williams' powerful, tender drama, a defrocked Episcopal minister leads a bus-load of Baptist women on a tour of Mexico. At the end of his emotional rope, the Reverend T. Lawrence Shannon seeks refuge in a ramshackle resort, but instead finds he must confront the explosive tensions between his sexual passions and his spiritual calling.
