About this show

In a rundown apartment in a St. Louis ghetto, erstwhile Southern belle Amanda Wingfield, her painfully shy daughter, Laura, and her aspiring writer son, Tom, form a triangle of quiet desperation. Amanda, an overbearing single mother, lives on memories of her glorious flower-scented youth, while her children bear the weight of her unrealistic dreams for their future. But when a gentleman caller offers false hope to the family, their precarious world shatters with haunting results. Winner of the 1945 New York Drama Critics Circle Award and the literary masterpiece that launched Williams' career, The Glass Menagerie continues to capture the imagination and hearts of American audiences
