Young Heavenly Critchfield is the girl all the boys want, especially the rich and refined Arthur Shannon, but she's in love (or lust) with the rough Dick Miles. The epitome of the tragic southern belle, Heavenly struggles to reconcile her sensual yearnings with her societal duty. The play, which takes place in the small town of Port Tyler, Mississippi in the Spring of 1937, is a classic deep South tale of adolescent rites of passage which prefigures the tragic female characters and lyric romanticism of Williams' later works, such as The Glass Menagerie.

Spring Storm is one of Tennessee Williams’ early plays, but the world he creates is a familiar one of strict southern social etiquette that creates the drama that the townspeople thrive on. Heavenly is a beautiful girl with good lineage who receives plenty of attention from men, but whose biggest fear is being unmarried and imprisoned on her front porch waiting for eternity. Heavenly is caught between the untamed Richard who is desperate to do leave the small town and the painfully shy, but, wealthy Arthur who has loved her since they were children.  The emotions of the characters rise and fall with the river and winds of the spring storm in this story of what we do on the cusp of adulthood when it comes to love and when spring arrives and makes us restless.
