Tennessee Williams was born in 1911 in New Orleans, LA, into a family with a complex, often violent dynamic. He followed his father into the shoe factory business, where he met a man named Stanley Kowalski, after whom the famed character in A Streetcar Named Desire was named. As longtime collaborator and Streetcar’s first director, Elia Kazan, stated, “Everything in [Williams’] life is in his plays, and everything in his plays is in his life.”
