Entertaining, Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if you are a fan of Tennessee Williams and want to see a good adaptation of this well known play, plus Clive Owen is just a great bonus to it!

Don't see it if you are in a mood for something more current and relevant to your life.

A large supporting cast populates it with detail and colour, with Finty Williams making a particularly powerful cameo as one of Shannon's tourists. As life's misfits find consolation and comfort in each other, I was truly moved.

...this may not be vintage Williams, but it survives through its opportunities for actors and the author’s boundless charity.

Clive Owen and Lia Williams burn bright...Star cast deliver a terrific revival of Tennessee Williams's last masterpiece

The resulting play, however, is a tale of salvation – a sensuous, humane, if over-baked piece about the hope that people can offer one another.

A brave, magnificently modulated revival...Starring Clive Owen and directed by James Macdonald, this is a brilliant reminder of what an extraordinary feat Tennessee Williams pulled off here
