Night of the Iguana – Joe Tilford

A run-down fishing camp that serves as a hotel nestled in the rain forest above the Pacific coast of Mexico is the setting of this classic play. It is September 1940. It is hot, humid and steamy. The lush tropical jungle surrounds the ramshackle building and seems to encroach. Man-made architecture sags and leans because it cannot resist the effects of the weather. The paint is pealing and wood rot and mold from the relentless heat and humidity are everywhere. Tropical rain at the end of Act I brings on the steamy night.
