Typical Tennessee Williams with desperate lives drifting through small-town America. The cramped auditorium is a good space to generate an intense claustrophobic relationship with the characters. The three young actors Joe Layton, Daisy Boulton and Zachary Fall portray the wretched vulnerability and callousness of the protagonists very effectively, making it feel like voyeurism not theatre. Williams's plays are never comfortable to watch, but you leave pondering how these people became what they are, and what happened to them next.
