Playwright: Tennessee Williams


Tennessee Williams achieved his first major success with this autobiographical "memory play," which looks at the Wingfield family — frustrated writer Tom, his nagging mother, Amanda, who is often lost in memories of her Southern-belle past, and his painfully shy sister, Laura — and the effect a visit from a "gentleman caller" for Laura has on all their lives.
