The Work of Tennessee Williams Comes to Life on the Margo Jones Theatre Stage

Join us on Sunday, June 2nd at the Margo Jones Theatre’s Magnolia Lounge for one of Tennessee Williams’ most subtle and tender works— Summer and Smoke! The play explores the conflict between the heart and the brain.

Set in Mississippi, Alma Winemiller, the minister’s daughter, has grown up loving the boy who lives next door. John Buchanan, the doctor’s son, is a wild and adventurous pleasure seeker. He spends the hot Mississippi summers drinking, gambling, and romancing.

His only religion is the anatomy chart on his wall, and what it teaches him about man’s needs: food, truth, and love. Alma, on the other hand, is quiet, eccentric, and high-strung. Her name means “soul” in Spanish; she aspires to lofty spiritual goals and holds to strong moral standards. Despite their differences, John and Alma are magnetically drawn to each other.

The spiritual and physical romance that almost blooms between the two of them is among the most engaging, romantic, and heartbreaking love stories in Williams’ canon. Tickets are $10-$25 and may be purchased online at You don’t want to miss it!

Even though South Pointe Apartments in Dallas, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
