“The Frosted Glass Coffin” by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Paul Wanis.
Early one morning, three old men sit outside the Hotel Ponce de Leon watching the line form at the cafeteria across the street. They talk about the price hike, they talk about a woman in the hotel who died suddenly the night before, they gossip. Underneath the chit-chat is an overwhelming awareness of death. They are all close to death. Not that they are sick … but when you’re in your 70s and 80s, you know that you’ve gotta be close.
