Summer and Smoke
by Tennessee Williams
“Don’t you think there is always something unspoken between two people?”
Alma and Johnny have lived close to each other all their lives but couldn’t be more further apart. Alma is the preacher’s daughter. She tries to maintain an appearance of respectability to the point of neurosis. Her name means ‘soul’ and she lives by it, seeking the fulfillment of the spirit. Johnny is the doctor’s son. Respectability is something he tries to avoid at all costs, destroying his reputation by seeking the pleasures of the flesh. Can they truly come to know each other, or will their relationship always be strained by things left unsaid?
