By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Kenneth Collins

In this short atmospheric drama by University of Iowa graduate Tennessee Williams, two unnamed characters, Man and Woman, live in a crumbling flat on the Lower East Side. He is a drunk, and she is purposefully wasting away - but between them there is an intimacy of desperation. Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen examines the ways we can feel isolated even while being surrounded by others.
