The Dark Room by Tennessee Williams (Farsi)
It is the early summer of 1939 in a big industrial American city, and social worker Miss Morgan is unprepared for the extreme destitution she encounters on a call to the Pocciotti family flat. Mrs. Pocciotti claims to be doing the best she can with a husband in and out of the city sanitarium and mostly male children who grow up and leave the family. Only Miss Morgan’s questions finally reveal that getting by has involved the willful neglect of a family burden hiding in “the dark room.”
Thomas Lanier Williams III (March 26, 1911 – February 25, 1983), known by his pen name Tennessee Williams, was an American playwright and screenwriter. Along with contemporaries Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller, he is considered among the three foremost playwrights of 20th-century American drama. At age 33, after years of obscurity, Williams suddenly became famous with the success of The Glass Menagerie (1944) in New York City. This play closely reflected his own unhappy family background. It was the first of a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), Sweet Bird of Youth (1959), and The Night of the Iguana (1961). With his later work, Williams attempted a new style that did not appeal as widely to audiences. His drama A Streetcar Named Desire is often numbered on short lists of the finest American plays of the 20th century alongside Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night and Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. Much of Williams’s most acclaimed work has been adapted for the cinema. He also wrote short stories, poetry, essays and a volume of memoirs. In 1979, four years before his death, Williams was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.
