Battle of Angels was the first play written by Tennessee Williams to be produced, which opened in 1940 and flopped. Later, Williams reworked it into Orpheus Descending, a play that sticks to the classic Tennessee themes of passion causing chaos and violence in previously small, quiet lives. And like another Tennessee classic, it later became a film with Marlon Brando in the lead role. Norwegian director Runar Hodne helms this adaption at Dramaten, which premieres in January.
