Amanda Wingfield 40-65
Was once a ‘Southern belle’, now a woman deserted by her husband, left to raise their son and daughter. Amanda’s memories of her own youth and the privilege of her past, operate as juxtaposition to the harsh realities of her present life.
Tom Wingfield 25-55
Tom is Amanda’s son. He is the narrator of the play. He works in a warehouse to support his family. He is a poet. His family’s reality is destroying his dream of writing; his means of escape.
Laura Wingfield 20-30
Laura is Tom’s sister. She has a slight physical disability, in one leg. She escapes her world through music and her menagerie.
Jim O’Connor 25-35
Jim is an acquaintance of Tom’s. He lives in the present fully grounded in his own reality compared to the Wingfield family. He is an ordinary, likable fellow.
