Candles To The Sun

Set in the Red Hills coal mining section of Alabama and dealing with both the attempts of the miners to unionize and the bleak lives of their families, the play, according to St Louis Star-Times critic Reed Hynds, is “an earnest and searching examination of a particular social reality set out in human and dramatic terms.” This was the first full-length play by novice playwright Thomas Lanier Williams to be produced, and subsequently opened to rave reviews in St. Louis.
