Quick Facts

 The Department of Theatre and Dance production of "Summer and Smoke" will run Oct. 4-7 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 8 at 2 p.m.
 Shows will be held in Johnson Theatre.

ROCK HILL, S.C. - Winthrop University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will present "Summer and Smoke," one of Tennessee Williams’ most respected plays, from Oct. 4-8.

The play, a delicate tragedy of missed romantic possibilities, will be directed by Russell Luke, theatre instructor. It is a simple love story of a puritanical Southern girl in love since childhood with the highly unpuritanical boy next door. The play becomes a conflict of opposites as the two, because of different attitudes about life, are driven further apart.

"Summer and Smoke" contains some of Williams’ most poetic and dramatic writing.

Performances will begin at 8 p.m. Oct. 4-7 and at 2 p.m. on Oct. 8 in Johnson Theatre. The cost is $8 with a Winthrop I.D. and $10 general admission.
