White Horse Theater Company
A Cavalier for Milady
"A Play for the Lyric Theater"
Event Status
a grotesque comedic portrait of society and “madness”
White Horse Theater Company will present Tennessee Williams’ A Cavalier for Milady, featuring a young woman dressed as a child who is kept house-bound with a tyrannical babysitter. While her Mother and friend Mrs. Aid are out for a night on the town with male escorts, the repressed “Nance” fantasizes about making love to a statue in the hall, which resembles Vaslav Nijinsky. This rarely seen Williams later work will be performed in a site-specific production in the Great Hall at the historic Players Club on Gramercy Park. Written in the late 70s, A CAVALIER FOR MILADY is one of Tennessee William's boldest and most theatrical works. In this play he successfully achieves a stylistic balance between grotesque humor and deep tragic pathos. The result is hilarious, moving and disturbing. The play fills us with a myriad of emotions, while creating a theatrical landscape filled with dance, music, poetry and symbolism.
