Here are portraits of American life during the Great Depression and after, populated by a hopelessly hopeful chorus girl, a munitions manufacturer ensnared in a love triangle, a rural family that deals 'œjustice' on its children, an overconfident mob dandy, a poor couple who quarrel to vanquish despair, a young 'œspinster' enthralled by the impulse of rebellion, and, in 'œThe Magic Tower,' a passionate artist and his wife whose youth and optimism are not enough to protect their 'œdream marriage.' This new volume gathers some of Williams's most exuberant early work and includes one-acts that he would later expand to powerful full-length dramas: 'œThe Pretty Trap,' a cheerful take on The Glass Menagerie , and 'œInterior: Panic,' a stunning precursor to A Streetcar Named Desire . The plays included: At Liberty '˘ The Magic Tower '˘ Me, Vashya '˘ Curtains for the Gentleman '˘ In Our Profession '˘ Every Twenty Minutes '˘ American Gothic '˘ The Case of the Crushed Petunias '˘ Moony's Kid Don't Cry '˘ The Dark Room '˘ The Pretty Trap '˘ Interior: Panic '˘ The Reading '˘ I Never Get Dressed Till After Dark on Sundays '˘ Kingdom of Earth '˘ Some Problems for The Moose Lodge
