Spring American Classic: The Glass Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Dawne Meeks

Awarded Best Play in 1945 by the New York Drama Critics’ Circle and acclaimed as Williams’ first great Broadway success, this emotionally devastating portrait of hope, glitters and reflects with a delicacy and beauty that will fix your gaze and move you to tears. In 1930s St Louis, aspiring poet Tom Wingfield reluctantly works in a shoe warehouse to support his overbearing, faded-Southern-belle mother and desperately shy sister, Laura. Pushed by his mother, he finds Laura a gentleman caller to try to coax her from her fragile private world. Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece is a touching tale of lost dreams, family bonds and survival.
