The Glass Menagerie
May 16 – June 2, 2019
by Tennessee Williams
While overbearing Southern genteel mother, Amanda, strives to give her children, Tom and Laura, a life beyond their decrepit St. Louis tenement, she is herself trapped by the memory of her life past-- a life of cotillions and suitors and wealth, now long gone. Tom, pressured by his mother to help find the physically disabled and cripplingly shy Laura a suitable husband, invites an acquaintance from his factory job to the apartment, a powerful possibility that pushes Amanda deeper into her obsessions and makes Laura even more vulnerable to shattering like the glass figurine menagerie she treasures. Williams’ intensely personal and brilliantly tender masterpiece exposes the complexity of our memories, and the ways in which we can never truly escape them.
