Summer and Smoke

Spring 2009
Mainstage Production
Tennessee Williams
Date of run: 
Wednesday, April 15, 2009 (All day) to Saturday, April 18, 2009 (All day)
A play that is profoundly affecting, Summer and Smoke is a simple love story of a somewhat puritanical Southern girl and an un-puritanical young doctor. Each is basically attracted to the other but because of their divergent attitudes toward life, each over the course of years is driven away from the other. Not until the end does the doctor realize that the girl’s high idealism is ultimately right, and while she is still in love with him, it turns out that neither time nor circumstances will allow the two to come together.
