Jane Comfort's Faith Healing at Joyce Sohohttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/comfort-and-faith-healing/937/
Laura is crippled and thus considered by her mother to be unmarriable. Tom is stuck in a boring job, supporting his family and also condemned to live at home. Movies are Tom’s primary escape from the numbing grind of daily life. Comfort very effectively interweaves scenes from films in a sort of dream sequence device, including scenes from classics such as Gone with the Wind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Superman—the latter includingly a thrilling “flying” sequence that is no more than Christian and Hardy lying on stools on their stomachs, tilting and dipping. It is enough to recall the film’s lengthy greenscreen flight by Superman and Lois. Laura seeks refuge in her own dreamworld, symbolized by swaths of tulle that she wraps around herself, populated by her glass menagerie.
