The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, Tennessee Williams’ play set in a remote Italian town, centers on Mrs. Flora Goforth, an acerbic, oft-married, woman-of-the-world who, faced with death, recalls her life’s story to the much-younger Christopher Flanders, a man caught trespassing on her estate.

One of Williams’ lesser known plays, Roundabout is pleased to breathe new life into it with an inspired performance by Olympia Dukakis (in previews at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre/Laura Pels Theatre).

Tennessee Williams is certainly no stranger to Roundabout Theatre Company.  Over the past 35 years we have revived Williams’ plays seven times, most recently The Glass Menagerie, starring Judith Ivey, Patch Darragh, Keira Keeley, and Michael Mosely.
