About this show

Depression era memory mingles with malice, regret and love in this familial tale that finds new resonance in the America of the Great Recession. The first great play by Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie established a high standard for American playwrights at the mid-century zenith of national effervescence. A self-described "memory" play, The Glass Menagerie reveals the coming of age of a young warehouse worker, Tom, and his struggle for independence from his over-protective, over-bearing mother, Amanda.
