The Jailer's Daughter, played by Allison Glenzer, holds a more important key than the one that sets Palamon free; she doesn't just set the tone for this production, she sets the standard of walking a path weaving through comedy and tragedy.
Glenzer's mad antics inspire astonishment in the other characters and laughter in us (and astonishment, too, at her courageous performance); but they come from a place of deep—and dark—honesty. Glenzer weaves the yarns of her many considerable talents into this one role: we've seen her as bawdy clowns, lusty women, despairing waiting women, and a defeated empress. The Jailer's Daughter is all of these.
