About this show

The Glass Menagerie launched Tennessee Williams's professional career and is regarded by many to be his most biographical work -- the characters and story emulating his own life more closely than any of his other plays. Inspired by real events, Williams employs themes of illusion and escape to depict the radiance and delicacy of life in this "memory play." This fall, Shattered Globe will embrace those themes in the rarely produced and fluid theatrical style that Williams prescribed for this play and American theater in general. Shattered Globe Artistic Director Kevin Hagan creates a mercurial production offering fresh reflections on the characters and story so familiar to audiences.
