By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Mel. Cook

Featuring Leslie Castay as Princess Kosmonopolis and Martin Bradford as Chance Wayne

Presented in partnership with the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival

Southern Rep Theatre is in residence at the Loyola University Department of Theatre Arts.

Melting in the heat of the Deep South, a dwindling star is swept up in a race against time. Fueled by booze, pills, and entitlement Alexandra del Lago (Leslie Castay) places herself in the care of Chance Wayne, an ambitious gigolo with less than a heart of gold and a drama of his own unfolding.
