This beautiful Memphis back yard garden was the site of the very first Tennessee Williams play ever performed. Titled Cairo! Shanghai! Bombay!, Williams wrote the play during the summer he spent in Memphis with his grandparents in 1935, recuperating from a breakdown that seemed to result from two years of writing all night and working all day at the International Shoe Company of St. Louis. Williams apparently wrote the play with his grandparents’ next door neighbor, a young woman named Dorothy Shapiro, who wrote the prologue and epilogue.
