Orpheus Descending

Orpheus DescendingT1465499234
In a small town in the Deep South of America nothing ever seems to change. That is, until one day, a charismatic young drifter appears with a snakeskin jacket and a guitar. Like a fox in a hen coop, this wild eyed boy tears up the prejudices and certainties of the town, igniting the passion of Lady Torrance, who for years has been trapped in a loveless marriage. But their freedom and love is too much for such a narrow-minded community...
Author Tennessee Williams
