Stairs to the Roof – November 6-23
Boo Cat Club (812 North Union, St. Louis, MO 63108)
Tickets available now via Brown Paper
Synopsis: Benjamin Murphy stages a one-man rebellion against the clock, the monotony of an eight-to-five job and the dehumanizing forces of an increasing mechanized and commercial society. Ben takes us on a series of fantastic adventures that culminate in an escape from the mundane…taking us up his stairs to the roof to a better, more Utopian world. Tennessee Williams’ "Stairs to the Roof" is a rarely produced gem that is at once a comedy and a love story, with a touch of early science fiction.
The story is influenced by his tenure at the International Shoe Factory in St. Louis. "Stairs to the Roof" will be the premiere performance at the new renovated Boo Cat Club, the former St. Louis Artist Guild, that was built in 1906 where Willliams produced a number of his earlier plays.
