The Night of the Iguana
Penned by Tennessee Williams, one of the first playwrights in history, The Night of the Iguana features an all-star cast including the likes of Clive Owen (who makes his return to West End after eighteen years), Anna Gunn, Julian Glover, and Lia Williams. Directed by James Macdonald, who has helmed many extensive productions, the show promises to be a stunner. When the show originally premiered as a three-part play in 1961, it was nominated for two Tonys. This is a deepdive into the dark psyches of certain characters and will surely intrigue the audience.
Reverend T. Lawrence Shannon has just been through an emotional breakdown, due to which he is forced to take up a job as a tour guide for an agency. He is taking a group of people across Mexico and due to an incoming storm, they take shelter at a rundown hotel located along the coast. When a storm is already brewing outside, the characters go through further internal breakdowns when Shannon is accused of raping Charlotte Goodall, one of the tourist group members. Watch the show to find out what happens next!
