Kate Cheel as BABY DOLL

Tennessee Williams’

BABY DOLL

Adapted for the stage by Pierre Laville and Emily Mann                

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE - OCTOBER 2019

Heat and desire sizzle in every line of Tennessee Williams’ Deep South tale of lust, jealousy and betrayal.

Down-on-his-luck Archie Lee is obsessed with his young bride, Baby Doll, but Baby is keeping her husband on a long leash. When the neighbouring cotton gin is burnt to the ground, dangerously charismatic Silva Vacarro pays them a visit, suspicious that Archie is to blame. In the steamy hours that follow, power and passion come irresistibly to the fore as a game of truth or dare plays out.

Peppered with wry humour and sultry comedy, this brand new adaptation breathes fresh life into a beautifully crafted tale by one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century.
