A Research and Production SourcebookBook - 1994
William Inge was one of the most significant dramatists of the 20th century. His dramatizations of the lives of repressed people struggling to sift through, make sense of, or escape from the psychological, sexual, economic, and familial complexities of modern life remain some of the most powerful in the American theatre. He achieved admirable success on Broadway, and several of his major plays were made into popular films. This book details and records his career.
The volume contains an overview of Inge's work as a dramatist and demonstrates how his plays have helped shape the modern stage. Included are plot synopses, production histories, and critical commentary for Inge's plays. The volume also presents bibliographic information for dramatic, non-dramatic, and critical writings by Inge, a list of archival material, and annotated entries for books, articles, and reviews that treat his work.
