A Story of Romance and Heartbreak Comes to the Stage of the Margo Jones Theatre
Join us on Sunday, June 2nd at the Margo Jones Theatre’s Magnolia Lounge for one of Tennessee Williams’ most subtle and tender works— Summer and Smoke! The play explores the conflict between the heart and the brain.
Set in Mississippi, Alma Winemiller, the minister’s daughter, has grown up loving the boy who lives next door. John Buchanan, the doctor’s son, is a wild and adventurous pleasure seeker. He spends the hot Mississippi summers drinking, gambling, and romancing.
His only religion is the anatomy chart on his wall, and what it teaches him about man’s needs: food, truth, and love. Alma, on the other hand, is quiet, eccentric, and high-strung. Her name means “soul” in Spanish; she aspires to lofty spiritual goals and holds to strong moral standards. Despite their differences, John and Alma are magnetically drawn to each other.
The spiritual and physical romance that almost blooms between the two of them is among the most engaging, romantic, and heartbreaking love stories in Williams’ canon. Tickets are $10-$25 and may be purchased online at https://www.theclassicstheatreproject.com/. You don’t want to miss it!
At McCallum Communities, the premier apartments in Dallas, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
