The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company of New Orleans (TWTC) was created in order to strengthen New Orleans' knowledge of Williams' works. Williams' Kingdom of Earth will play through Aug. 16 at the Metropolitan Community Church of New Orleans.
Kingdom of Earth, one of Williams' lesser staged works, is described as such: "On a dark and stormy night in the Mississippi Delta, the levee is about to break. It's on this occasion that the troubled Lot brings his new bride Myrtle home to meet his family--what's left of it. Lot's embittered half-brother Chicken has turned the family home to his Spartan den, and Myrtle feels less than welcome as she's cast into a life-and-death game of tug-of-war."
The production stars Kate Kuen, Sean Richmond and David Williams.
Kingdom of Earth is directed by Augustin J. Correro.
In a statement director Correro said, "The play strikes at the heart of human nature: both the dark and snarly, and the hysterically funny. Tennessee Williams knew how to write fully fleshed-out characters, and we can’t wait to present them to the New Orleans audience!”
