About The Wooster Group:
The Wooster Group is an ensemble of dynamic theatre artists based out of New York City. Situated in the worlds of dance, visual media and theatrical arts, the Group’s work is part of radical post-modern experiments that originated in the mid-‘70s. In the Group’s pioneering productions, texts and technology are interwoven to tell stories in new ways. The ensemble is directed by Elizabeth LeCompte and the company has launched the careers of many actors and directors.

One of Williams’ last, elegiac plays is boldly re-imagined by the most influential and experimental theatre company in the United States. This radical – yet textually faithful – interpretation of Williams’ autobiographical play seethes with sexual and creative awakening, desire and loneliness in New Orleans. Directed by Elizabeth LeCompte and supported by the company’s hallmark layered sound score and inventive use of video, the play is deftly translated to the 21st century.
"I'd trade a dozen or so Broadway retreads of Williams' acknowledged masterpieces for [this] ... brilliant production."
