November 1, 2013

Like nearly all of Williams's later, more experimental plays, The Mutilated was met with stinging reviews, disappointment and even anger when it premiered on Broadway in 1966 (with The Gnadiges Fraulein, under the collective title Slapstick Tragedy).

Directed by Cosmin Chivu, legendary avant-garde performers Mink Stoleand Penny Arcade will star in the first New York revival of The Mutilated in 38 years. The production features original music composed byJesse Selengut, performed by the three-piece combo Tin Pan.

This play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject-so far as possible- the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with who she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely 'normal' young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.
