"and Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens..." written by Tennessee Williams in 1955, was ahead of its time.
Transgender, Aging, Homophobia, and Survival are all themes in this poetic, at times, brutal play.
The script was not produced in Williams' lifetime, due to his blatant treatment of a subject matter that was not spoken of in the decades before now.
The result is a powerful punch of a play, performed and directed by four of Indy's finest talents.
