About This Show

The Old Globe’s "Classics Up Close" series continues with the play that established Tennessee Williams as one of the most riveting voices in the American theatre. Amanda Wingfield reminisces about a tranquil Southern childhood and fights to provide a better life for her grown children Tom and Laura, while they struggle for a future that seems unlikely to fulfill their mother’s hopes and dreams. But a change in fortune suddenly seems possible with the arrival of the long-hoped-for "gentleman caller." The Glass Menagerie is an unforgettable American classic!
