Out Cry is an American play by Tennessee Williams, about a grown brother and sister who have been abandoned by their acting troupe in a theatre, and begin to discuss how they got there, both literally and figuratively. This version will cast South Asians in the roles. Williams described the play as "My most beautiful play since A Streetcar [Named Desire], the very heart of my life". We will be performing the entirety of Act 1.
