Few theatrical debuts have trumpeted a writer's genius louder than The Glass Menagerie
, Tennessee Williams' first successful play. Tom Wingfield -- a poet struggling with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life with his overbearing mother and fragile, introverted older sister -- narrates the show, which has been called one of the greatest plays ever written. Tom's seemingly innocuous decision to invite a friend home sends the lives of all three characters off in directions none of them could have predicted. Taken directly from Williams' own experiences as a young man in St. Louis, it is rare that play presents characters of such depth, desperation and humor.
