About this Item

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This never before published play by Williams is set in Provincetown, Cape Cod in 1940 and records Williams' first meeting with his future lover Kip. Performed in 1981, Something Cloudy was not published until mid 1995, twelve years after Williams's death, because Maria St. Just, Williams's self-appointed literary executor, feared it would hurt the playwright's reputation with its unabashedly brutal disclosure of his homosexuality. According to Williams, "Something Cloudy was one of the most personal plays I've written—it released for me some of the emotional content of my life.". Bookseller Inventory # 25271
