Linda Marlowe stars in a rare production of IN THE BAR OF A TOKYO HOTEL, one of Williams’ most daring and extraordinary plays, in only its second London production in the 33 years since his death.
IN THE BAR OF A TOKYO HOTEL, directed by Robert Chevara, will run for a 6-week season at Charing Cross Theatre from Tuesday 5 April – Saturday 14 May.
IN THE BAR OF A TOKYO HOTEL reunites the creative team behind the
acclaimed 2012 sell-out production of Williams’ autobiographical Vieux Carré at the King’s Head Theatre in 2013, that later transferred to Charing Cross Theatre.
Linda Marlowe said: “I have loved Tennessee Williams plays since I was a young girl and have had the good fortune to play some of his famous female roles. Ten years ago, while I was in New York performing a solo show of some of Williams’ lesser-known short stories adapted for the stage, I came across IN THE BAR OF A TOKYO HOTEL in a bookshop and swore Miriam Conley was a role I would one day play. Her humour, her wit, her manipulative ways, her toughness, her vulnerability, her fear of dying without her control over how she dies, all make her one of Williams’ great heroines.”
Joining the previously announced Linda Marlowe are: David Whitworth starred as Nightingale in Chevara’s acclaimed production of Vieux Carré at the King’s Head Theatre and Charing Cross Theatre, London Assurance directed by Nick Hytner at the National Theatre, and Paul Miller’s production of French Without Tears at the Orange Tree;
