WORLD PREMIERE

 

 

"...the loss of one fool makes room for another."
-- Madame LeMonde

The world premiere production of a savage comedy by Williams, written late in his life. Tea-time turns into torment, and desperation into absurd laughter.  From Boston’s acclaimed Beau Jest Moving Theatre, celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year.

Set in a boarding house in London, a mysteriously paralyzed man named Mint moves around his attic by swinging from hooks as he prepares for tea with an old friend (played by Larry Coen who starred in last year's premiere of Dog Enchanted). A dark, disturbing tale with a sinister sense of humor, originally written to shock -- as part of an evening of Grand Guignol that was never produced. This memorable play is a must-see for anyone interested in the great playwright's experimental work.

 

For mature audiences only. Very adult themes and language.
