Mr. Paradise and The Long Goodbye    by Tennessee Williams

Tennessee Williams wrote once that “snatching the eternal out of the desperately fleeting is the great magic trick of human existence.”
These plays issue the challenge to bear witness, to see ourselves in the humor, heartbreak, and heroic humanity of the moments that play before us.  In the room with Williams we know what is in store for us and whether we find that illusion to be pleasant, problematic, or profound, we also know it to be true. And that is a great trick, indeed.
