THE Wye Theatre Company will be bringing a little of old Hollywood to Hereford this month with their production of Tennessee Williams’ The Night of The Iguana, the last of the distinguished American playwright’s major critical successes.
First performed in the 1960s, The Night of the Iguana focuses on sexual relationships and odd characters, including the Reverend Lawrence T Shannon a man crippled by his desires, and teetering on the edge of the abyss.
Wye Theatre Company is hoping to create the hot and steamy atmosphere of the 1964 film and to create an unforgettable experience for theatre goers, with cocktails served before the show amidst the music and atmosphere of 1940s Mexico.
“The actors have developed their characters beautifully and I hope we will have an outstanding and dynamic production with a side of fun and laughter,” says the show’s director Hayley Llewellyn.
The Night of the Iguana will be showing at the Powell Theatre, Church Street from Wednesday until Saturday, November 17. Doors open 6.45pm, curtain up 7.30pm.
Tickets are available from The Outback Store in Church Street or online at wyetheatre.co.uk.
