"What attracts can also destroy..."
Although The Glass Menagerie.
Suffering from a debilitating writers' block, Williams struggles to regain his inspiration through Crane's poetry and, ultimately, find the courage to continue work on what would become A Streetcar Named Desire.
Winner of the award for “Outstanding Solo Show” at the 2007 NY International Fringe Festival, this provocative and intimate portrayal offers a unique glimpse into the heart of Williams – the desires and demons that shaped him, and the muse who inspired yet nearly destroyed him.
