NVA’s Smokin’ Southern Summer Sex Play

by The Editors on May 27, 2010

Summer101Carlsbadistan’s New Village Arts Theatre drops into a steamy Tennessee Williams classic this Saturday May 29, 2010 with Summer And Smoke.

[The play]. . . tells the story of Alma (Jo Anne Glover), a minister’s daughter, and John (John DeCarlo), the hedonistic doctor next door. In her search for spirituality and lasting love, Alma is confronted with John’s need for sensual fulfillment. Their turbulent relationship becomes an emotional battle of wills that alters each of them irrevocably. Riveting and intense, this masterpiece takes the audience through the heart of a Mississippi summer.
