Period of Adjustment was written in response to the comment of a Hollywood columnist that said Williams’ plays were always “plunging into the sewers.” But Williams also said, “I would like to write a happy play for a while. Maybe some day I will suddenly become hilarious.”

Performances continue through Sept. 21. Visit www.what.org for tickets and info.
