The Glass Menagerie
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Tennessee Williams' autobiographical masterpiece about Amanda and her fractured family is brought to the stage by director Jessica Kubzansky. This semi-autobiographical account of Tennessee Williams' early days in 1930's St. Louis is a heartbreaking yet often funny "memory play" told from the perspective of Tom Wingfield. The Glass Menagerie is the story of a family desperate to break free of the burdens of their past and their present. Tom's mother, Amanda has been abandoned by her husband, and now lives only for her children; his unmarried sister, Laura, is a fragile and painfully shy creature who retreats into a world of glass animals; and Tom himself is torn between his poetic inclinations and the responsibility of supporting his mother and sister. Each escapes into their own personal "glass menagerie" as a means of eluding the pain of their own - and each other's - existence. Additionally, there are performances on Saturday, February 18 and Saturday, February 25 at 3:00pm; and also Thursday, March 2 and Thursday, March 9 at 8:00pm.
