Abstract:

"The solid and deft characterizations of the four young people whose lives intertwine - the sexually alive Heavenly Critchfield, her earthy lover Dick Miles, Heavenly's wealthy but tongue-tied admirer Arthur Shannon, and the repressed librarian Hertha Neilson who loves Arthur - while unique, foreshadow characters we will meet again and again in the Williams cannon. Epic in scope, somewhat melodramatic in execution, tragic in outcome, Spring Storm created a wave of excitement among theater insiders when it was given a staged reading at The Ensemble Studio Theatre's Octoberfest '96." "Productions planned for the fall of 1999 will give real audiences a chance to respond to the unusual event of a "new" play by Tennessee Williams. This edition has been prepared with an illuminating introduction and textual notes by Dan Isaac."--BOOK JACKET.
