“Not About Nightingales” is remarkable both as the work of an unknown 27 year old and as a first play to carry the signature Tennessee Williams. 
The subject matter is a prison scandal which shocked the nation in the mid 1930’s when convicts leading a hunger strike in prison were locked in a steam-heated cell and roasted to death. 
“I have never written anything since that could compete with it in violence and horror”, Williams said later about the full length play he developed in 1938.
It shows us the young Williams as a political writer in Depression America; its flashes of lyricism and compelling dialogue presage the great plays Williams was later to write. The sympathetic treatment of blacks and homosexuals was revolutionary for the time, and may explain why the play remained unproduced for 60 years, after being brought out of the shadows by actress Vanessa Redgrave in the late 1990’s. 

This production will be an Australian Premiere.
