In Kingdom of Earth, a flood is surging in the Mississippi Delta, and Chicken's property is only safe until ole man Sikes down the road dynamites his levee to save himself. While Chicken waits alone in his kitchen for the inevitable blast, he receives an unexpected visit from his dying half-brother, Lot, and Lot's wife of but one day, Myrtle. Leaving Lot upstairs to rest, Chicken assesses Myrtle as a potential threat to his inheritance of the estate, currently under Lot's name. Chicken and Myrtle find common ground but not even footing in their similar experiences of the inescapable hardness of the world – two "lost, sinful, puzzled" souls falling into a familiar power dynamic and bracing themselves as the waters rise. Estelle Parsons’s 1968 performance as Myrtle garnered a Tony nomination for Best Leading Actress.Tennessee Williams’ work changed the landscape of American theater.
This evening of his short plays will perform in the heart of the NY Theatre District, opening for the summer season.
