Dear Anna Vladimirovna,
we are very grateful to you for suggesting a topic on T.Williams, otherwise the choice would be fiendishly difficult for us: we know very little about his works. Actually, it was Ewe (Lena) who came up with the idea to choose T.Williams: she saw the film based on "A Streetcar Named Desire". She shared it had impressed her. What's more, T.Williams is a distinguished American playwright, so we decided his works could show us a new aspect of life, something we have never thought about before. And "Outcasts..." is such a topic. Being young and ambitious, we rarely bother to think who are cosidered "outcasts" by the society, how true this judgement is and who is responsible for this happening. It's a good thing to know more about the world you live in, from our point of view.
