Baby Doll in Broadway BABY DOLL
Ensemble Theatre Company
In the spring, ETC will present the seductive black comedy Baby Doll, by Tennessee Williams, based on the 1956 Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-winning film of the same name. Set in the Mississippi Delta, two rival cotton gin owners, Archie and Silva, are locked in a vicious professional competition. After he suspects Archie of burning down his cotton gin, Silva seeks his vengeance by hatching a plot to seduce Archie’s 19 year-old bride, Baby Doll. Wary of reaching adulthood and being obliged to consummate her marriage to Archie, Baby Doll clings to her childhood with naïve innocence, sleeping in a crib, wearing children’s nightgowns, and even sucking her thumb.
