"The Glass Menagerie" / "Sand" / "Folk"

Three contrasting reviewing assignments in the past few weeks: Tennessee Williams' classic family tragedy "The Glass Menagerie" in Newport, featuring a heart-breaking performance from Eiry Thomas; the latest offering from The Other Room, Nick Gill's nuclear war-themed "Sand", starring Sara Lloyd-Gregory; and my first attempt at reviewing a dance piece, with "Folk" from NCDW at Sherman Cymru. All highly effective, with the caveat that "Sand" tends to state the obvious, albeit very eloquently.
