“The Night of the Iguana”

IRVING/LAS COLINAS, TX: Widely known as Tennessee Williams’ last great play, The Night of the Iguana grapples with some of life’s biggest mysteries. The Night of the Iguana is produced by MainStage Irving-Las Colinas and runs March 15 through March 30 in the Dupree Theatre at Irving Arts Center (3333 N MacArthur Blvd., Irving TX).

In The Night of the Iguana, a defrocked priest has been accused of having inappropriate relations with a teenage girl. He seeks shelter at a Mexican inn run by his blowsy, widowed old friend who finds herself competing for his attentions with a kindly spinster who is caring for her grandfather, an aging poet. Of this play, The New York Times raves, “This is Tennessee Williams at the top of his form."
“It is quite easy to understand why critics believe The Night of the Iguana is Tennessee Williams’s greatest play and a classic example of American theater.” Director Rose Ann Holman remarked, “His characters must face and then deal with their frailties, failures and hopes for the future.”
The cast of The Night of the Iguana is led by Walt Threlkeld as Reverend Larry Shannon, with Sherri Small as Maxine Faulk, Laurel Collins as Ms. Judith Fellows, Evelyn Davis as Hannah Jelks, Jackie Kemp as Nonno, Marisa Duran as Charlotte Goodall, Kris Yunc as Pancho, Pælor Cuihn as Hank, Stephan Roberts as Jake Latta, Mitchell Doerr as Wolfgang, Kami Rogers as Hilda, Kimberly Smith as Frau Fahrenkopf, and Clayton Cunningham as Herr Fahrenkopf.
