William Inge (1913-1973) was an American playwright and novelist. It was largely through a chance meeting with Tennessee Williams that Inge came to playwriting, in his early thirties, after watching a production of The Glass Menagerie and setting to work on Farther Off From Heaven, his first play. Its success led him to write others: Come Back, Little Sheba, Bus Stop, The Dark at the Top of the Stairs and then an Academy Award-winning screenplay for Splendour in the Grass. His works typically work through themes of sexuality and isolation.
