‘Night of the Iguana’ benefit helps theatre in the schools

August 25, 2011

FORESTBURGH, NY — The Forestburgh Theatre Arts Center (FTAC) at The Forestburgh Playhouse will presents Tennessee Williams’ “The Night of the Iguana,” in a special benefit performance to support the FTAC’s theatre in the schools program, on Sunday, September 4 at 8 p.m. The play will be preceded by a gala pre-show cocktail/dinner at The Tavern. Tickets to the show and gala cost $75/person. Season subscribers pay $55. Tickets to the show only cost $40 with a subscriber price of $20.

“The Night of the Iguana,” a searing emotional journey of loneliness and redemption that takes place in a run-down hotel on the Mexican Riviera in 1940, is the last and generally regarded as Williams’ most mature work. The FTAC’s theatre in the schools program will bring another Tennessee Williams masterpiece, “The Glass Menagerie,” to area high schools and the Eugene D. Nesin Theatre in Monticello this fall.
