WINQ RECOMMENDS

Confessional

From 5th October, Southwark Playhouse, London

A deserved hit at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, this immersive production of Tennessee Williams’ rarely performed one-act play – his only work to feature openly-gay characters – is now being revived in London. Featuring a cast of shameless lowlifes getting drunk in a run-down bar, the action centres around a caravan park beautician who discovers her lay-about boyfriend has been cheating on her with her mentally-ill best friend. To make matters worse, it’s also the anniversary of her gay brother’s death, an event she’s forced to revisit when two of his gay friends arrive at the bar. Expect a white-knuckle ride through Williams’ familiar themes of dashed dreams and delusional despair – but with the characters’ humanity shining through the misery.
