That master of faded dreams and lonely lovers filled with regret, the Southern playwright Tennessee Williams wrote this one-act allegory in 1948. The story of a fallen ex-boxer (played in this 1966 production by the great Martin Sheen), TEN BLOCKS ON THE CAMINO REAL takes place in a made-up Latin American nation which seems like a surreal otherworld. Co-starring Lotte Lenya, Tom Aldredge, and Michael Baseleon, it is a tragic story of spiritual decay and false hope.
