The Glass Menagerie

By TENNESSEE WILLIAMS
Directed by JULIANNE BOYD

A drama of exquisite beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the greatest American plays of the 20th century. Tennessee Williams  looks at the Wingfield family – frustrated writer Tom, his nagging mother Amanda – who is often lost in memories of her Southern-belle past – and his painfully shy sister Laura. A visit from a “gentleman caller” sets off emotions and revelations that change their lives forever. Reality and illusion collide in this stirring family drama.

Sponsored in part by Hildi and Walter Black & Stephanie Fleckner and Arnold Kotlen
Student Matinees sponsored in part by The Dobbins Foundation & The Alpern-Rosenthal Foundation
