White Horse Theater Company Presents
I Can't Imagine Tomorrow By Tennessee Williams
Thursday, January 30, 2014 through Tuesday, February 04, 2014

An intimate site-specific production of a rarely produced one-act play by Tennessee Williams

Length: 0 hrs 45 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Written during Williams' experimental later period and departing from the highly articulate poetic language of his well-known earlier works, I Can't Imagine Tomorrow employs silence and fragmented discourse in order to express the themes of human dependence, fear, and loss that Williams was grappling with during the 1960s.

Directed by White Horse Theater Company’s Producing Artistic Director Cyndy A. Marion, in I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow, characters “One” and “Two” are the only friends of one-another. They carry out the same evening ritual of card playing and watching the news on TV in an effort to avoid any real confrontation. “One’s” physical deterioration and approaching death forces her to prepare for the inevitable. “Two” resists this change and his consuming fear of losing “One” leads to an emotional breakdown.

The production will star Nancy Wolfe* (best known for her star turn as the psychotic Susan Atkins in the 1976 TV special Helter Skelter) as “One” and Joseph Cassese* (Penny Marshall’s Riding In Cars With Boys) as “Two.” The creative team includes Debra Leigh Siegel (Lighting Designer), David B. Thompson (Costume Designer), Vanessa R. Bombardieri (Dramaturg), Brooke Harbaugh (Assistant Director), Katie W. Chew (Production Stage Manager), and Joe Gianono (Composer/Arranger).

The White Horse Theater Company will stage this rare, beautiful work in an intimate site-specific production in the Great Hall at the historic Players on Gramercy Park. The 1/31 performance will be followed by a special panel discussion with renowned Tennessee Williams scholars Dr. Annette J. Saddik and Thomas Keith.
