    ‘Gray’s production of Summer and Smoke portrayed these unstable modes of breathing with a serene sense of dignity fully realised by the complex and compelling characters of Williams’ underrated play.’ Varsity

    ‘The acting shines in an excellent production of Tennessee Williams’ complex and tender work.’ The Cambridge Student

    “The girl who said 'no' — she doesn't exist anymore, she died last summer — suffocated in smoke from something on fire inside her.”

    In a rural town, in the heat of the summer, Alma Winemiller meets Dr. John Buchanan. Set against the backdrop of a conservative society that values propriety and conformity, Alma and John are forced to confront their deepest fears and desires as they navigate their relationship. Summer and Smoke is a timeless masterpiece that showcases Tennessee Williams' unparalleled skill at crafting complex and compelling characters.
