About this event:

Created by Nancy Bishop

6157 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60660, USA

WHAT:  Raven Theatre is hosting a staged reading of Something Unspoken, a Tennessee Williams short play from his “Garden District” one-acts, set in New Orleans’ Garden District. Raven is currently running its production of Suddenly Last Summer, the companion play to Something Unspoken. Both plays premiered off-Broadway in 1958. Raven will hold a wine reception in the lobby before the reading.

SO WHAT: Miss Cornelia Scott is a grand, Southern woman whose outer extravagance belies inner insecurities. She has a complex, codependent relationship with her secretary, and during an election for the leadership of a local organization, their tensions reach a tipping point. Jake Freund is directing the reading, which will feature Maggie Cain and Heather Branham Green.

NOW WHAT: Readings are pay-what-you-can with a suggested donation of $10. No reservations required. Doors open at 7pm. See our review of Suddenly Last Summer, which runs until June 17.
