Williams’ play is both indestructibly beautiful and fragile enough to collapse if the performances are weak. The strong acting and intelligent directing in Weston’s production honor Williams’ poignant, somewhat autobiographical story. Coury orchestrates moments of stillness and focus that resonate, especially in the play’s closing tableau.
