About the Show Less...

Smouldering attraction and repressed passion in Tennessee Williams's story of a young Southern belle tortured by her unrequited love for the town's handsome young doctor. Read More >

In a small, insular town in America’s Deep South in 1916, Alma Winemiller is a proper young Southern belle, who has long adored John, the charismatic but dissolute son of her neighbour and the town’s respected doctor. As the drama unfolds in this tale of longing and unrequited love, lives are changed in a way that none of those involved could have ever predicted.
