Williams, Tennessee: Suddenly Last Summer and Other Plays

Suddenly Last Summer/The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore/Small Craft Warnings

'Williams is a writer of poetic symbolism, of mood and mystery ... his plays stain themselves into one's heart' The New York Times

These three dramatic works by Tennessee Williams explore the darker side of human nature and are haunted by a sense of isolation and regret. 'Suddenly Last Summer' is the starkly told story of Catherine, who seemingly goes insane after her cousin Sebastian dies in grisly circumstances on a trip to Europe. 'The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore' is a passionate examination of a wealthy old woman as she recounts her memories in the face of death, while in 'Small Craft Warning' a motley group of people - including a blowsy beautician, a discredited alcoholic doctor, a vulnerable waif and two gay men - sit around a seedy bar on the Californian coast, each contemplating their own desperate fate.
