Suddenly, Last Summer is a one-act play by Tennessee Williams. It opened off Broadway on January 7, 1958 as part of a double-bill with another one of Williams' one-act plays: Something Unspoken. The presentation of the two plays was given the overall title Garden District, but Suddenly, Last Summer is more often performed alone now. The play, which is basically made up of two long monologues, is one of Williams' starkest and most poetic works.
