The Glass Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Gary Benson

A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre. Amanda Wingfield is a faded tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter , Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her childrn, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother's nagging and seeks escape at the movies. Laura also lives in her own illusory world. Amanda and Laura's carefully crafted world of illusions collapses about them. Tom, at the end of his tether, at last leaves home.
