If you've never heard of this play by Tennessee Williams, one of the most successful and acclaimed playwrights of the 20th century, there's a very good reason why. Not About Nightingales, written in 1938, was rejected, then lost until the 1990s, after actress Vanessa Redgrave, having read about the play's existence, made it her personal mission to find it. After its discovery, Not About Nightingales was finally produced in London. It then moved to Broadway, where it was nominated for six Tony Awards. Not About Nightingales is the story of prison inmates whose miserable conditions and abusive warden lead them to embark on a hunger strike. Now is your chance to see this play, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie and many more, at the Raven Theatre in Chicago.
