The Glass Menagerie
Directed by Lauren Bartelt
By Tennessee Williams
An American classic that tells a tragic family tale of love, bitterness, and abandonment. This autobiographical poetic memory play of heartbreaking drama, proved to be a defining moment for Tennessee Williams — and for theater history.
From her dingy St. Louis apartment, Amanda Wingfield dreams of her days as a Southern debutante while obsessing over the future of her aimless son Tom and unmarried daughter Laura. With their father absent and the Great Depression looming , the siblings find comfort in their foibles — alcohol for Tom and a collection of glass animals for Laura — which only heightens Amanda’s anxiety. When a gentleman caller arrives for dinner, the Wingfields are flooded with hope. But it’s unclear if his presence will change things for the better or shatter their fragile illusions.
