Period of Adjustement first hit Broadway in 1960 and remains a brilliantly sardonic and entertaining comedy on Fifties attitudes to love and marriage. Opening one Christmas Eve in Memphis, Tennessee, it portrays two couples (one of them just married) caught in a sudden crisis of loneliness  and sexual and emotional inhibition.

This volume also contains Summer ans Smoke, a love story set in Mississippi in 1916; and Small Craft Warnings, commonly agreed to be the best of Tennessee William's later plays. With its action concentrated into a single evening in a bar on the Californian coast, it is a drama of survival executed with characteristic passion and power to move.
