Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Never produced until this year (1998), NOT ABOUT NIGHTINGALES (1938), portrays a shocking prison scandal in which convicts leading a hunger strike in prison were locked in a steam-heated cell and roasted to death. Williams himself later said that he had never written anything to compare with it in violence and horror. The play indelibly presages the great plays he was later to write.
