Director Gary Tucker and Goodman artistic director Gregory Mosher urged Williams to expand it into a full-length play. The playwright returned to his home in Key West and began working on what was now called A House Not Meant to Stand , a title suggested by a production assistant on Tennessee Laughs.
Williams called it a " Southern Gothic spook sonata," a deliberate reference to an August Strindberg play known as The Ghost Sonata in its English translation. The crumbling house was a metaphor for contemporary society, while the characters were drawn from the Williams family, notably his father Cornelius, his aunt Belle, his paternal grandfather, and his brother Dakin. The play opened in late April at the Goodman, where it did respectable business through the end of May.
Time , calling it "a rich collection of scarred characters," said it was the best play Williams had written in a decade. Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive? Thomas Merton.
