1 Male 0 Female

He was one of the great twentieth century American playwrights, and Tennessee Williams' private persona is shown to have been just as fascinating as his plays in this delightful, moving and incisive ninety minute drama

The play is structured as an interview with a reporter, to whose unheard questions Williams responds directly to the audience as if they are doing the asking

We learn of the struggles of his early years, his first successes, the price of his fame and his later years of dissolution and decline, all in Williams' delightfully witty style

"Illuminating" ~ N.Y. Post

"Ingratiatingly salty" ~ Time Magazine

"A thrilling evening" ~ Hollywood Reporter

"Tennessee would have loved it" ~ L.A. Herald Examiner
