SynopsisWORLD PREMIERE EVENT – 3 WEEKS ONLY! A presentation of Steppenwolf Theatre Company, About Face Theatre and Tectonic Theater Project Tennessee Williams’ unproduced screenplay is strikingly re-imagined for the stage by Moisés Kaufman, the acclaimed director of the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning I Am My Own Wife and the international phenomenon The Laramie Project. Ollie, a military boxer whose limb is lost in a car accident, turns to a life of hustling in Williams’s revealing and personal tale that was never allowed to be produced in his lifetime. Bear witness to the daring poetry of Williams and the bold theatrical vision of Kaufman as they transport the audience from the streets of New Orleans to a yacht in the Florida Keys to a harsh prison in the Midwest. One Arm will startle, seduce and fascinate as it journeys through the erotic fever dream of a fallen boxer. "One Arm, the knockout production: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times "For Williams aficionados, One Arm is required theatergoing." Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune "A riveting, poetic, flesh-and-blood stage adaptation..." Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
