The Night of the Iguana

Written By Tennessee Williams
Directed By Kathy Scambiatterra

A spiritually-lost reverend battles to save himself amid the denizens of a dilapidated Mexican hotel. Caught between the women who tempt and taunt him, Shannon faces his own personal Gesthemane during the dark tropical night where everyone learns exactly what happens when you come to the end of your rope.

“...Still, chock full of lyrical heart, well-observed moments of beauty and some of the best performances Chicago storefront has to offer, The Artistic Home’s production of this under-appreciated masterwork should not be missed.”
— Anthony J. Mangini, Chicago Critic
“...Scambiatterra declares the Artistic Home’s relocation to have been a search for a place where “as an actor, you cannot hide.” Her ensemble’s attention to text and character analysis, coupled with the intimacy of the company’s new West Town quarters, creates a focused intensity making for riveting suspense despite the unexcised script. The actual running time is two and a half hours with one intermission; however, after the first few minutes, you’ll barely notice.”
— Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times
