Mid-20th century America: the second World War is over, and people of every class are rebuilding their lives. The world is changing: old money is evaporating, and prosperity is knocking for others. No matter if they’re on their way up or down, everyone has a secret, everyone is covetous of what they do not have, and everyone is capable of tenderness and violence in equal measure. The heat is on, and it’s only getting hotter.
The Kindness of Strangers is a journey through the lurid, steamy world of the American South in the style of one of America’s greatest playwrights: Tennessee Williams. Troubled men, spellbinding women, and a touch of magic come together to create stories that are hilarious and heartbreaking all at once. A cast of The Hideout’s best improvisers creates these never-before-seen plays beginning on Saturday, July 8th, and running every Saturday through the end of August.
