Studio 3: Suddenly Last Summer
Thursday, March 30 – Sunday, April 2
Black Box Theatre

The Department of Theatre presents Studio 3: Student Directed One-Act Plays. Studio 3’s spring 2017 production features Suddenly Last Summer by Tennessee Williams, directed by Hannah Kennedy. Catherine Holly has witnessed the murder of her cousin Sebatian, which has sent her to a psychiatric hospital. When Sebastian’s mother, Mrs. Venable, invites a psychiatrist to question Catherine about her story, she paints a picture so graphic it’s almost unbelievable. Mrs. Venable would rather not believe it and have her son’s secrets remain secrets. In one of Tennessee Williams’ most haunting pieces of writing, how far will a mother go to preserve her son’s reputation? (Click heading for full description.)
