Fiona: Tennessee Williams wrote some of the greatest roles for women and most were based on people he had met and known during his life. I had the great fortune of playing the Princess in SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH the year before with the same company; in fact, we toured to the US with it and it was an exhilarating and memorable experience. It is always a joy to work a second time with like-minded actors and creative team, so it was great to work with Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer again! Amanda is said to be based on Williams' mother and so I read biographies and accounts of his life to filter into the characterization. All characters in his work are facetted and Amanda is deeply complex and full of contradictions - a delusional, flighty, down to earth, disillusioned person who above all is a devoted and doting mother. There are many more Williams' women I would like to play!
