‘Kingdom of Earth’ worth seeing

“Kingdom of Earth” is a neglected masterpiece that only extreme Tennessee Williams aficionados may have had the deep pleasure to experience.

Seeming-stereotypical characters evolve into myriad complexities of human possibility. Local (and world class) actors Jimmy McCammon, Grace Fae and Brian Arnold embody these very human humans with the dark brilliance that is characteristic of Williams’s finest works.

Director Camen Hodges has brought it! And his staging flows in the intimate confines of the venue (brought to languid southern life by the indomitable set designer Pam Hodges and lighting designer Anja Leon-Guerrero). Great music, too!
