Tennessee Williams is at Court in Tring

A FADING Southern Belle is obsessed with finding a suitor for her daughter, a girl crippled as much by shyness as by her lame foot, a son is bored by his mundane job and spends most of his time watching movies dreaming of being a writer, and the much longed for gentleman caller - four characters in a memory play narrated by Tom Wingfield many years after escaping the stifling confines of his home.

The play is thought to be autobiographical and was Williams’ first successful play.

It’s about the tough decisions people make for themselves that affect others, and adversely affect themselves.
