Recent Comments "Something Cloudy, Something Clear"

Originally written in the late 40's as a one-acter entitled The Parade, Williams expanded the play near the end of his life. Williams practiced this often in his long career; short plays became "dry runs" for extended works and afforded him the opportunity to flesh out his ideas before embarking on larger projects.Like many of his late plays, Williams freely mixes autobiography and fiction in this work. This play takes that proclivity a step further by dispensing with even the thinnest disguises [...]

I don't know if you would call this play a memory play like Vieux Carre, but I think it must be. Tennessee attempts to write a play that takes place in the present and in the past at the same time. A valiant effort and a must read for Williams' buffs.

Debated between 3 and 4 stars, but I like Williams so much I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. There are some wonderful moments, but something about this is too personal for it work as a play.
