Overview

The Rose Tattoo by Tennessee Williams

Winner of the 1951 Tony Award for Best Play. One of the author's most beautiful and powerful plays. Set among a colony of Sicilian fisherfolk on the American Gulf Coast, it is the story of a woman for whom love was stronger than death.

Serafina delle Rose is a restless widow whose intense and absorbing instinct for love drives everything before it. The figure of this extraordinary woman dominates the small town where she and her friends are living and embodies the exultation and danger of unbridled passion. Her story, and that of the lover she chooses and the daughter she denies, are forged into a play of power, humanity and soaring emotion.
