The Glass Menagerie

Until February 21, 2016

Celebrated as one of the great American plays of the 20th century, this Tennessee Williams' classic is a four-hander that explores the sometimes painful bonds of family. Faded Southern belle Amanda is constantly worrying over her two live-in adult children; the painfully shy and disabled Laura and her restless poet brother, Tom. Desperate to marry Laura off to a suitor, Amanda convinces Tom to bring home a possible candidate for Laura, but her crippling shyness quickly puts paid to that plan. When Jim reveals that he is already engaged, (unbeknownst to Tom), Amanda lashes out in fury, putting into motion a dramatic set of events. The ultimate story about toxic motherhood and co-dependence, this is an enduring story of family strife and broken dreams.
