Dark, Great acting, Intense

See it if you want a darker than dark, sublimely acted and very minimalist rendition of Tennessee Williams' classic.

Don't see it if you don't like long plays that have very serious and dark themes. If you don't like minimalist theatre this may not be your bag either.

Not as intense as expected, Indulgent, Great acting, Creative, Ambitious

See it if you like Tennessee William and/or this cast, or just want to see an old play that you haven’t seen before.

Don't see it if you expect something groundbreaking. It’s a well-staged and well-acted production, nothing much more than that.
