About This Show

Written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Tennessee Williams, it is one of the greatest plays of the 20th century and a classic of the American theatre. Set in 1930s St. Louis, this iconic, emotional, and enduring drama explores the visceral bonds of family, as the restless poet Tom Wingfield recounts his life with his overbearing mother Amanda and the illusions she spins to save his painfully shy sister Laura from the reality of their frail existence. Embodying the turmoil of a changing world, Menagerie strips Williams’ tortured characters of their illusions, leaving a wake of destruction in their path. Poetic and provocative, it is a story of great tenderness and beauty, a haunting and uncompromising master work from one of the greatest writers in modern drama. A must-see American play!
