The Glass Menagerie
31 May, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
About the Play:
Amanda Wingfield wants what any mother would – a stable career for her wayward son Tom and a suitor for her fragile daughter Laura. Her romantic sensibilities are captured by the idea that Tom’s friend Jim might be the ideal gentleman caller. But is he simply too good to be true? Widely regarded as one of Tennessee Williams’ most powerful and haunting plays, The Glass Menagerie is a poignant reflection on the glories of times past, with echoes of loneliness, fragility and innocent hope.
