27 Wagons Full Of Cotton by Tennessee Williams
The Interview by Octave Mirbeau.
Tickets go on sale for Grist To The Mill’s latest production
27 Wagons Full of Cotton is a mighty big piece of business to fall into the lap of impoverished gin owner Jake Meighan. So how come he got so lucky, and what can he do to keep the contract? Silva Vicarro doesn’t believe it was luck, he thinks that Jake burnt down his cotton gin, and now he is looking for revenge. So just how far is he prepared to go? Perhaps Flora, Jake’s young wife, may be able to provide an answer for both of them?
In The Interview Chapuzot, a bar owner, finds himself being interrogated by a rather hard drinking and determined newspaper reporter, who has accused him of beating his wife – but Chapuzot isn’t married. The journalist refuses to believe him so the question is what will run out first – the beer or Chapuzot’s patience?
27 Wagons Full of Cotton is arguably Tennessee Williams’ greatest short play and a forgotten masterpiece. It was the basis for Baby Doll, the controversial film by Elia Kazan, and was rediscovered and revived by Make&Bake last year – who produced it to much critical acclaim at the Riverside Studios last year, where it was long listed for a What’s On Stage Award. The Make&Bake production starred Ross Ericson as Jake Meighan, a role that he is reprising for us.
The Interview by Octave Mirabeau is another long lost masterpiece, and this new translation by Claire Chard moves the setting from France to New Orleans. It is a wonderfully comic piece that provides a perfect partner to the steamy 27 Wagons.
27 Wagons Full Cotton by Tennessee Williams and The Interview by Octave Mirbeau will run at The Vibe Gallery, above the Vibe Bar, 91-95 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL from 7th July to 26th July 2012.
Evening performances are at 7.30pm, with matinees on Saturday at 3pm and on Tuesdays at 1pm. There are no performances from 12th to 15th July and on the 20th July.
Tickets are £10.50 if purchased on line, with a limited number of £5.50 tickets for those under 26. There is a two for one offer for all tickets booked before 24th June and all tickets on the door are £14.
