'The Glass Menagerie' - By Tennessee Williams

<B>'The Glass Menagerie'</B>

Date: Wednesday 13th November 2019
Time: 19:30














St Agnes Theatre Players present Tennessee Williams’ loosely autobiographical and considered by many to be defining, play - The Glass Menagerie - which was written in 1944 and first produced on Broadway the next year, where it won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for best American play.

An evocative and deeply personal play, The Glass Menagerie is seen through the memories of Tom Wingfield, a poet and a dreamer. Constrained by his life working in a warehouse and his tenement apartment, he rebels against the strictures of his controlling mother, Amanda. He escapes through the movies, fulfilling his dreams through the Hollywood greats of the 1930s.

Amanda lives by her charm and the steely gentility of her Deep Southern roots, her purpose centred on finding a gentleman caller for her shy and reclusive daughter. But Laura has long since shunned the real world for one of fantasy and escapism – her menagerie of glass animals.

One of the most powerful plays of the 20th century, The Glass Menagerie is a tale of love, loss and the disparate hopes and dreams of a family at odds.

Suitable for 10 years and above.
