Another visit to the Pentameters Theatre beckoned in order to see another of their Tennessee Williams productions. Directed by Seamus Newham, this production of Wild At Heart encompassed four short plays: At Liberty (1939), Mr Paradise (1941), Hello From Bertha (1946) and Talk To Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen (1952).
At Liberty was a moving exploration of a mother-daughter relationship, while Mr Paradise was an amusing tale of a lapsed poet tracked down by an enthusiastic young fan. Hello From Bertha was a powerful scene set in a St. Louis brothel, while Talk To Me… closed the show with a quiet, contemplative exploration of a failing relationship. Taken altogether, the evening was a rich and engrossing one.
