The Pretty Trap

In this never-staged early comic draft of Tennessee Williams's The Glass Menagerie, the latter's miasma of illness and repression had not yet descended. Despite a wonderful revelation in its tarter version of Amanda (a vivacious Katharine Houghton), the production suggests that these more realistic Wingfields were not enough to build a play around.—Helen Shaw
