About Southern Belles

Southern Belles unites two groundbreaking one-act plays by one of the twentieth century’s most influential dramatists, Tennessee Williams. Presented together for the very first time, these startling tales of love, loneliness and longing will headline King’s Head Theatre’s Queer Season. Never staged in the playwright’s lifetime due to its openly gay characters, And Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens charts the heartbreaking encounter between an extraordinary queen and a troubled sailor in 1950’s New Orleans. In Something Unspoken, tensions between a wealthy spinster and her loyal secretary boil over in a confrontation that exposes their complex, unacknowledged yearning for each other. Poignant, unexpected and shimmeringly beautiful, Southern Belles casts a light on the lives of those forced to hide their true feelings from society.From the co-director of the critically-acclaimed, West End smash-hit, SIX
