One of the greatest plays of modern theatre, Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie tells the story of a small, fragile family living trapped between the memories of the past and their dreams for the future.
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 children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother's nagging and seeks escape in alcohol and movies. Laura also lives in her illusions. She is crippled, and this defect, intensified by her mother's anxiety to see her married, has driven her more and more into herself. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre. Presented by Theatre Tallahassee. All Theatre Tallahassee shows run for three weekends and open on a Thursday night at 8 pm and run Friday and Saturday nights at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. The Glass Menagerie runs February 15-March 4, 2018.
