Beauty Is the Word is Tennessee Williams' first play. The 12-page one-act was written in 1930 while Williams was a freshman at University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri and submitted to a contest run by the school's Dramatic Arts Club.[1] Beauty was staged in competition and became the first freshman play ever to be selected for citation ; the college paper noted that it was "a play with an original and constructive idea, but the handling is too didactic and the dialog often too moralistic.".[1] The play tells the story of a South Pacific missionary, Abelard, and his wife, Mabel, and "both endorses the minister's life and corrects his tendency to Victorian prudery."[1]
