With characteristic comic energy, Tennessee Williams explores the inner workings of the heart. Passion is reignited for a Sicilian seamstress whose love, grief, and anger know no bounds. After the death of her husband, Serafina, played by Tony and Emmy Award-winning Andrea Martin, retreats to the safe haven of memories after the death of her husband. But when these memories are shattered by a horrible truth, the widow finds comfort in a truck driver she describe as having "my husband's body with the head of a clown." Living in a small immigrant town on the coast, Serafina must struggle to come to terms with her own awakening desire, as well as that of her 15 year-old daughter, whom she can no longer shelter from the perils of love.
