Staged Reading of THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA
Free staged reading of THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA by Tennessee Williams.

Set on the eve of World War II at a beachside hotel in Mexico, The Night of the Iguana introduces audiences to the recently defrocked Rev. Lawrence Shannon. Working as a cut-rate tour guide for a group of Baptist school teachers, Shannon quickly finds himself in hot water for sleeping with a young woman in the group. Finding refuge at the Costa Verde Hotel, owned by his friend, the seductive widow Maxine Faulk, Shannon does his best to manage the disaster. Also arriving at the hotel is the pure spinster painter Hannah Jelkes, who scams tourists with her grandfather Nonno, "the world's oldest living and practicing poet." Shannon cajoles Maxine into letting them stay, and over the course of the night's tribulations, Hannah and Shannon forge an unlikely friendship. As the last of Williams' celebrated works, The Night of the Iguana offers complex, three-dimensional characters in a poetic, sensual tale of inner conflict, companionship, and, ultimately, redemption.
