Performing Arts Production of Red Devil Battery Sign

About the Play

In the mid-1970s, Tennessee Williams — inspired by events surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy — wrote, "The Red Devil Battery Sign." With uncanny vision, he depicted the path America is now taking regarding suspected government collusion with powerful Asian forces and with civil strife on the streets where gangs roam and fear reigns. Now, more than 40 years after the play was first produced, Williams’ projections seem to be coming true as he tells a tragic but poetic story of how two vulnerable people fight to survive in an increasingly dangerous world.

With a Mariachi band, a conspiracy theory and a pack of violent boys, CCD's performing arts department is proud to welcome guest artist Carol Bloom (Lady Downtown) and Ed Osborn (director).

Seldom produced, you won't want to miss this piece written very late in his career.
