I love Tennessee William. Let me put that out there. I appreciate his use of symbolism and Southern Gothic style. I like the way his plays are simultaneously character and plot driven, with the characters' personalities progressing the plot lines to create an effect. However, I found the character progressions too vague in this play, and I was disappointed, because I really wanted to learn more about Maggie and Brick. I found Maggie especially strong, with her determined mind and her coy use of her sexuality. As an actor, I could picture the characters coming to life, and I would probably enjoy seeing a staged production.

Jennell Have to be honest, I find Tennessee Williams more interesting than his plays.
