Cast and creatives discuss One Arm at Southwark Playhouse

In 1942 Tennessee Williams wrote One Arm, a short story with a striking central character who haunted his imagination for the rest of his life.

Williams revisited Ollie’s story 25 years later in a screenplay of the same title – a script too provocative for the studios of 60s Hollywood.

Moisés Kaufman, creator of The Laramie Project, fuses these texts into a powerful theatrical work inspired by the movie that was never made, now receiving its UK première at Southwark Playhouse.

One Arm runs at the Southwark Playhouse from 10 June until 4 July.
