The Night of the Iguana

Friday January 31, 2020
Category/Venue: Threshold Repertory Theatre

Show runs Fri Jan 31 – Sun Feb 16

Threshold Repertory Theatre
84 Society Street, Charleston, SC
Presents: The Night of the Iguana
by Tennessee Williams

The time is 1940 and the setting is the Costa Verde Hotel on the west coast of Mexico, a ramshackle idyll high in a rainforest overlooking the ocean. It's here that Shannon (Owen), in his current, ill-fitting role of tour guide, comes running for help. Tormented by his party of Texan schoolteachers, who accuse him of sleeping with an underage teenage girl, Shannon drags the group away from their designated hotel to this isolated establishment, run by old friends.

 



Men on Boats

Friday March 6, 2020
Category/Venue: Threshold Repertory Theatre

Show runs Fri Mar 06 – Sun Mar 22

Threshold Repertory Theatre
84 Society Street, Charleston, SC
Presents: Men on Boats

Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above. Pack your gear for this 21st-century telling of 19th-century American explorer and one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, who assembles a brawny band of soldiers, trappers, and adventurers to explore the waterways of the American West. Inspired by Powell’s actual travel log from 1869, Jaclyn Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a diverse cast of women who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext.
