When: Fri., May 13, 6 p.m. 2016
Flora and Bessie drove up from Memphis to have a good time in St. Louis at the annual Sons of Mars Convention (they're both in the women's auxiliary). Unfortunately, they've been ditched by their fellow members and are now holding up the corner of the bar. As the drinks flow and the radio takes them on a sentimental journey, Flora and Bessie open up about each other's failings and flaws. Tennessee Williams' A Perfect Analysis Given by a Parrot takes you inside the hearts of a couple of good-time girls who begin to realize the good times may not be worth it. The play is performed at 6 p.m. at the Curtain Call Lounge inside the Fox Theatre (521 North Grand Boulevard; www.twstl.org) as part of the Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis. Tickets are $23.50.
