About the Show Less...

Tennessee Williams's drama about a soldier's troubled marriage. Read More >

Christmas Eve in High Point, 1958. George takes his new bride to meet friend and fellow soldier, Ralph Bates for the holiday celebrations.

As snow settles outside, the idyllic Christmas scene begins to dissolve. While past hopes and dreams are recounted, the bittersweet reality of their marital relationships surface in the present with comical and poignant results.
