The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore by Tennessee Williams

Tennessee Williams’ rarely performed The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, an extraordinary play set on an exclusive mountaintop villa off the Amalfi coast premiered in Spoleto, Italy in 1962. It has often been referred to as a play worthy of its author’s justly celebrated name. Stage, TV and film star Linda Marlowe (Who appeared in Harold and Maude and the Tennessee Williams’ In The Bar of a Tokyo Hotel at the Charing Cross Theatre) plays Flora Goforth, a rich, terminally ill tour-time widow refusing to accept her own mortality, sitting in isolated splendour. Between shots of morphine and pills downed with brandy, she dictates her memoirs. Joining her is a cast which includes acclaimed actress Sara Kestelman in the role of the Witch of Capri.

This is a strictly limited engagement of 32 performances.

Directed by Robert Chevara with Joe Ferrera, Matteo Johnson, Sanee Raval and Lucie Shorthouse.

Production Design by Nicolai Hart-Hansen, Lighting Design by Adam King, Casting by Ellie Collyer-Bristow.
