 A sensuous story of longing and rebellion, Tennessee Williams' Summer & Smoke was hailed by The New York Times as "a gently torrid parable of body and soul ... charged with passion and anguish". A lonely minister's daughter, Alma Winemiller (Mary Sheridan), lives in her stifling parent's home in a small-minded Mississippi town. Her only solace: a secret lifelong love for the former boy-next-door, Dr. John Buchanan (Michael Frederic), now a fully-grown, wandering-eye bachelor. Tortured by her unrequited passion, Alma's spiritual devotion becomes pitted against John's sensuous need for physical desire, and their turbulent relationship becomes an emotional battle of wills that will irrevocably alter each of them forever.

Cast members: Mary Sheridan; Michael Frederic; Samuel Adams, Jessica Angleskhan; Mia Bankston; Harry Barandes; Lena Hurt; Clyde Kelley; Jorge Montenegro; Stu Richel; Melodie Wolford; Rachael Hip Flores.
