The Night of the Iguana
A defrocked Episcopalian minister, a lusty widowed hotel owner, and an honest but penniless painters are united by chance circumstances for a stormy night at a dilapidated Mexican hotel. Torn between sexual desire and guilt, tempted by the nymphet Charlotte, lusted alter by Maxine, and denied and inspired by the chaste Hannah, Shannon straddles an essential human dilemma of how to lead a moral life and remain a sexual creature. In his controversial and poetic play, which brought the American treasure his third Pulitzer Prize, Williams examines turbulent emotional and sexual forces, and physical and spiritual needs.
“A great portrait of the impossible yearnings of human beings,"
