Streamers

Presented by Carrollwood Players at Carrollwood Players Theatre, Tampa FL

Aug 23 - 25
Streamers

A powerful play with comedy and drama, Streamers examines issues relevant in today’s modern world, such as homophobia, racism, depression, and the frightening spectre of war.

This volatile, incendiary drama premiered in 1976 under the direction of Mike Nichols, produced by Joseph Papp at New York’s Lincoln Center. Revived in 2008 by the Roundabout Theatre, the third in author Rabe’s quartet of “Vietnam Plays” is set in the Army barracks housing a group of young men, the “streamers” of the title: hapless parachutists who streak to certain death when their parachutes fail to open.

This group includes Billy, a new recruit; Roger, a street-wise refugee from the ghetto; Richie, a sarcastic, bitter homosexual and their sodden, ineffectual sergeants, Cokes and Rooney. Awaiting deployment to Vietnam, they are joined by Carlyle, an angry, psychotic young man, whose presence sets off an escalating spiral of violence and tragedy.

This play depicts adult themes, adult language, and violence.

Streamers is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc, a Concord Theatricals Company
