Yes, Tennessee Williams wrote a holiday musical comedy! Trinket and Celeste are at sixes and sevens with each other, but by the time the bells of St. Louis Cathedral toll twelve on Christmas Eve, will they reconcile, or will they end up in Touro Infirmary with battle wounds? Complete with warped Christmas carols from a chorus of Quarter rats, this is Tennessee Williams in his holiday best! This hilarious production will feature an original score by New Orleans based composer Michael Gillette!
