CAMINO REAL is Tennessee Williams’ symbolic, expressionistic masterpiece about making it in a world that is seemingly too real for romance and idealism. It takes place in a mythic town square somewhere on the American continent. Transients from all walks of life seem to be trapped there, unable to move on in their own journeys. Are they trapped by their habits? Their demons? Their lovers? When a young man with a fighting spirit enters this purgatorial arena, will he succumb to the allure of the Camino Real, or will he break out, tearing down its walls with him? Find out as he navigates the treacherous police state governed by a huckster-despot, and populated by such characters as Lord Byron, Casanova, Camille, and Don Quixote!
