Summer and Smoke
The Almeida Theatre production
SYNOPSIS: A drama in a prologue and two parts about Alma Winemiller's repressed love affair with her childhood sweetheart, the handsome but dissolute Dr. John. He is a man of the body and the senses. Miss Alma (the Spanish word for "soul") is a creature of the spirit -- or at least so she'd like to believe. Will they understand each other before it's too late?
