The peak of my virtuosity was in the one-act plays. Some of which are like firecrackers on a rope." (Tennessee Williams)
A selection of one-act plays by one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century. Recently re-discovered and rarely performed, these vignettes, mainly from the late 1930's and 1940's, show many of the familiar themes of Williams's later plays, but in the shorter, more immediate one-act form. Featuring: In Our Profession; The Case of the Crushed Petunias; Me, Vashya; The Fat Man's Wife; At Liberty and The Dark Room, we can clearly see the dramatic genius of Tennessee Williams.
"A panoramic yet detailed view of the themes, the demons, and the wit of this iconic playwright."
