BABY DOLL by Tennessee Williams

Birmingham Rep Theatre / Royal National Theatre
Presented by Promenade Productions and ATG

Baby Doll tells the story of the childlike bride of a Mississippi cotton gin owner, who becomes the pawn in a battle between her husband and his enemy. Archie Lee Meighan, middle-aged cotton gin owner, can hardly wait for the 20th birthday of his childish bride Baby Doll, when he’ll be allowed to consummate the marriage…he thinks. But rival owner Silva Vaccaro suspects Archie of burning his gin down, and takes an erotic form of Sicilian vengeance.

AWARDS

Jonathan Cake – Best Actor, Barclays Theatre Awards

Bunny Christie – Best Designer, Evening Standard Awards

“The fusion of film and stage works wonderfully well and puts us back in touch with the greatest American playwright of the last century at the peak of his powers… The evening delivers a glorious affidavit to Williams and will, I promise you, be remembered as a landmark revival.”
Daily Mail
