About The Eccentricities of a Nightingale - Off Broadway

Show Info


The Actors Company Theatre presents a revival of Tennessee Williams' The Eccentricities of a Nightingale. In Glorious Hill, Mississippi, Alma Winemiller, a sensitive and lonely young woman, hemmed in by her stern minister father and deranged mother makes a final desperate attempt to win the man of her choice. Alma finds solace in her music—and in the secret lifelong love she has for the boy next door, turned handsome grown-up, Dr. John Buchanan. Driven by her desire for truth and beauty, Miss Alma finally confesses her longing to John and what emerges is one of the theatre’s most startlingly modern and complex love stories. This is Williams's own "preferred" revision of his earlier play Summer and Smoke.
