Critics consider "The Night of the Iguana" as one of Williams' finest works. The play takes place at a cheap Mexican resort hotel and explores the relationships of three distinct characters: the tough, lusty widow who runs the resort, a neurotic defrocked minister, and a gentle spinster from New England. The play is intended for mature audiences.
