Unfinished Tennessee Williams Play Found

Playwright Tennessee Williams, shown in New York on Nov. 11, 1940.
The first 10 pages of an unpublished and untitled Tennessee Williams play about D. H. Lawrence; his wife, Frieda; Katherine Mansfield (spelled Katharine in the draft); and her husband, John Middleton Murr, were found in an archive by scholar Gerri Kimber. Writing in the Times Literary Supplement, Kimber says that aside from a listing in a Williams bibliography and a mention in one scholarly footnote, "the play seems never to have been discussed by scholars until now."
