TALK TO ME LIKE THE RAIN
A Double Bill of Short Plays by Tennessee Williams:

THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMNED
and
TALK TO ME LIKE THE RAIN AND LET ME LISTEN

Directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh

From the mid-1930s, long before he achieved recognition with The Glass Menagerie, Williams was a prolific writer of poetry, short stories & one-act plays. In these micro-dramas, rich with poetic insight, he began exploring his life-long theme of the search for salvation, happiness - paradise even - in an imperfect world.

In 'This Property is Condemned' - Willie, a teenage girl in a ragged party dress, lives alone in her family's abandoned house, and then one day, playing on the railroad track, she meets a boy who will listen to her story...
In 'Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen' - A young couple create a quiet place of refuge for themselves in the midst of a cruel city.

After the success of last year's SOMETHING UNSPOKEN, Bewley's Cafe Theatre's celebration of the work of Tennessee Williams continues with a double bill of two of his most famous and engaging One-Acts.
