The Night of the Iguana description

The Night of the Iguana – A Tennessee Williams classic

This is a Tennessee Williams classic, first produced in 1959 as one-act play. Later redeveloped into a full length piece by Williams, the adaptation wowed audiences on Broadway during 1961, now it's back to thrill audiences on the West End stage, and it stars the brilliant Clive Owen.

Tennessee Williams’s The Night of the Iguana was the playwright’s last major box office success. It won him his fourth New York Drama Critics Award. Similar to all his work, this one examines sexual relationships and eccentric characters, including one man who's actually crippled by his desires, namely the Reverend Shannon.

Unlike most of Williams’ work, The Night of the Iguana ends on a positive note. And there's more. It's also unusual because of the lingering mystery of the iguana, an animal that's in the play's title but who spends most of the play tied up on the veranda. The creature could be symbolic of various things – perhaps freedom, maybe the meaning of being human, or even a reflection of Shannon himself. Whatever the iguana signifies, at the end of the day this marvellous play speaks about the tormented centre of the human condition.

This is a brand new West End production. The 1964 film adaptation won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. The amazing 1992 National Theatre production, directed by national treasure Richard Eyre, starred Alfred Molina as Shannon. The last time West End audiences had the chance to see the show was way back in 2005 at the Lyric Theatre, starring US movie star Woody Harrelson as the Reverend Shannon, and directed by Anthony Page.

The multi-award-winning actor Clive Owen returns to the London stage for the first time in nearly 18 years to play the Reverend. Breaking Bad actress Anna Gunn plays Maxine Faulk, and the huge West End star Lia Williams portrays Hannah Jelkes. Last but far from least, the wonderful Game of Thrones actor Julian Glover plays Nonno.

Clive Owen is probably best known for his role in the 2004 rom-dram movie Closer, in the role of Larry Gray, a part that snagged him a coveted Golden Globe Award, New York Film Critics Circle Award, Toronto Film Critics Circle Award, Las Vegas Film Critics Society Award and a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Lia Williams last appeared in the 2016 production of Mary Stuart, and won Oliver and Tony Award nominations for her role in Skylight. And Anna Gunn, of course, played Skyler White in TV's Breaking Bad, becoming a two-time Primetime Emmy Award winner for the role.

The plot? Welcome to 1940s Mexico. When a group of tourists turn up at the tatty Costa Verde Hotel and an intense tropical storm batters the town, a war of words begins between the clashing personalities.

Who is this show for?
Tennessee Williams plays are written for adults and deal with adult themes. This production is probably best suited to people aged over 16.

Great set and great acting

Great story if you love T Williams as I do. Only criticism is that some actors were too loud and needed to vary their pitch for better impact. This did not apply to the principles however. Wonderful set and storm especially effective

A peep at the lower depths

Tennessee Williams at his windiest. It could definitely lose 20 minutes, possibly from the old gentleman's poems (sorry). The characterisation is brilliant, drawing the viewer into the sleazy life of these drop-outs. Clive Owen and Lia Williams especially good and at times quite touching.
