The Rose Tattoo

Written by Tennessee Williams

Serafina delle Rose is a restless widow whose intense and absorbing instinct for love drives everything before it. The figure of this extraordinary woman dominates the small town where she and her friends are living and embodies the exultation and danger of unbridled passion. Her story, and that of the lover she chooses and the daughter she denies, are forged into a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.

"Winner of the 1951 Tony Award for Best Play. One of the author's most beautiful and powerful plays. Set among a colony of Sicilian fisherfolk on the American Gulf Coast, it is the story of a woman for whom love was stronger than death.

This production was dedicated to the memory of Estelle Crane - 1903-1980. The symbol of dedication t quality, First Lady and mentor of The Barn Theatre in whose name there is given an award for outstanding non-theatrical contribution.
