In 1997, PRISM published a story, called “Young Lion Across the Water,” by Thomas Kennedy. A week ago, we received a request from Thomas for a copy of issue 36.1, in which the piece appears. In exchange for the issue (we had just one spare!) Thomas agreed to tell us the story of why he needed it.

The theatre of Tennessee William—its sweeping tragedy and breathtaking lyricism, as well as its incendiary subject matter and uncompromising brutality—captures our imaginations.
Williams’ later plays (those following Night of the Iguana in 1962), however, have been subject to great debate, controversy and even outrage. These more experimental plays have been slammed by critics as incomplete, incoherent, and overly symbolic. Williams’ later career indeed presents the unique and fascinating opportunity for audiences and readers to see an iconic artist in mid-metamorphosis—and PRISM was privileged enough to hear about this transformation from Williams himself in a 1980 interview.
The following was originally published in the Spring 1981 issue of PRISM.
This interview was conducted in Vancouver, prior to the opening of THE RED DEVIL BATTERY SIGN at the Playhouse Theatre. PRISM international was represented by St. John Simmons and Joe Martin. Also present was Roger Hodgman, Director of the Vancouver production.
