Humor and Satire

Introduction to the Collected Plays of Martin Manofsky, Volume 1
Most playwrights insist that the full, correct titles of their works be used, not abbreviations or nicknames. Legend has it that Tennessee Williams once sent Eugene O'Neill on a four-day binge simply by referring to DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS as KISSY-KISSY, TREE-FACE. However, as O'Neill had been planning on a five-day binge, you can see that Williams actually did him a favor.
