Back Porch Players presents Tea and Sympathy


The Back Porch Players presents Tea and Sympathy (1953) by Robert Anderson, a coming-of-age story about a conflicted young man at a boys' prep school and his unique relationship with the headmaster's wife.

Inside a New England boy's school dormitory, Tom's classmates taunt him for his sensitive and seemingly unmanly nature. Tom’s attempts to compensate for his lack of masculinity capture the attention of Laura, the headmaster's wife. Despite her husband's objections, Laura comes to Tom's aid with more than tea and sympathy. An unlikely romance ensues.

David Rainey of the Alley Theatre directs.
