    April 7-22, 2017

    CLASSIC DRAMA: CST is proud to present the drama that served as the basis for the Oscar-winning film staring Burt Lancaster and Anna Magnani. In the play an Italian-American neighborhood in Louisiana is rocked when a local truck driver is killed by police, leaving his wife devastated. Serafina's grieving comes to an end when she learns of her husband's infidelities and lured by the desire for a handsome drifter who has come into town.

    The Story: 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.
    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.

    Opening Night Party: Fri, Apr 7 at Sage Restaurant
