Along with igniting enthusiasm for Williams's work, this exploration of his personal life reveals a man whose own tangled web of familial dysfunction has distinct parallels with The Glass Menagerie, the play that rocketed Williams into the Theatre hall of fame. And whose tragic sister, diagnosed as mad, lobotomised and institutionalised for life, formed the basis of A Streetcar Named Desire's Blanche DuBois.
If you fell in love with Williams's dramaturgy afresh after the mesmerising Young Vic revival of Streetcar this summer, or if you missed out on this sellout show and want an insight into one of America's most successful and troubled playwrights, this is an unmissable evening of theatrical history and personal narrative.
