DetailsSomething Cloudy, Something Clear
is set in Provincetown, Cape Cod in 1940, and re-imagines the events of a pivotal summer in the life of a playwright called August as he teeters on the brink of his first Broadway success. Living in a beach shack with only his phonograph, typewriter and a bottle of rum for company, Augusts isolated existence is suddenly blown apart by the arrival of a young woman named Clare and her ethereally beautiful brother, Kip. Written in 1980, Williams penultimate play is strikingly different in content and style from his better known works such as A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie. A delicately woven tapestry of past and present, vulnerability and toughness, impetuous action and mature insight, the play seeks reconciliation between love and art, life and death, the cloudy and the clear. It explores notions of time, of memory, and of love in its many forms, particularly poignant in light of Tennessee Williams own life.Performers Susan Bovell, Bruce Godfree, James Hillier, Nikki Leigh Scott, Juliet van Kampen.
