Malcolm R. Campbell's World

A fragment of an unknown play by Tennessee Williams

A fragment of an unknown play by Tennessee Williams | TLS.

“Recently, while on a Research Fellowship at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, I came across the first act – ten typewritten pages, with autograph emendations – of an unpublished and unnamed play by Tennessee Williams, with two separate scenes, the first, eight-page scene called ‘The Night of the Zeppelin’ and the second, ‘Armistice’. The play is listed in Tennessee Williams: A bibliography by Drewey Wayne Gunn as one of the holdings in Texas, and Margaret Bradham Thornton refers to it in a footnote in Tennessee Williams: Notebooks. But the play seems never to have been discussed by scholars until now”

Research sometimes turns into a literary treasure hunt.


Malcolm R. Campbell is the author of “The Sun Singer,” “Emily’s Stories,” and “Jock Stewart Strikes Back.”
