Suddenly Last Summer

The story is set in New Orleans in the summer of 1936 in the garden of Violet Venable. It is here that she attempts to find out the truth of her son’s death from her niece ‘Catherine’, the only witness to her son’s savage murder. Although Mrs Venable has already heard the story that Catherine had told, she cannot believe the savagery of it and thinks she is lying. Therefore she has arranged for a doctor who deals with experimental medicine to attend the meeting with Catherine and decide if a Lobotomy may be performed on Catherine to remove this savage tale.
