Before choking to death on an eye-drop bottle cap (which he supposedly kept under his tongue while administering eye-drops), Tennessee Williams wrote a great many plays. None of them are as surprising, perhaps, as Camino Real, in which 40+ characters (including Don Quixote, Lord Byron, and Esmeralda) mingle in the plaza of a walled-in desert town, terrified of what lies beyond. Surreal, comic, tragic, Williams. A Co-Production with CalArts, this one.
