When Brother Julian agrees to visit the Church's mysterious benefactor Miss Alice in her gothic mansion, he finds himself a pawn lost in her labyrinthine world of aggressive consorts, children's games and seething passions. Theatrically innovative, this rarely produced play first challenged audiences with its premiere in the late 60s, posing questions that far outpaced its time. Albee's infamous and lacerating treatise examines man's relationship with God and the serpentine way it is mediated through the exchange of love, money and power.
Silk Dress Productions’ revival of Tiny Alice will be only the second New Orleans production in more than 43 years. The last production was in 1968 at the Gallery Circle Theater directed by George Patterson.
