The Glass Menagerie

 

The Theatre Chipping Norton

 

March 2013

 

By Tenesse Williams
Directed by John Terry
Lighting Design by Amy Southeard

 

John Terry, directing a gripping, well-acted, home-grown revival at Chipping Norton Theatre, takes his cue from this to present the piece — which Williams styled a “memory play” — as from a film set, with the writer’s reminiscences framing the action being performed as the cameras roll.
This transportation of the audience to Studio Six — the words stamped on the incomplete, flimsy wooden set supplied by designer Will Fricker — works extremely well.
(Four Stars).
