Star of stage and screen, Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Cocoon) delivers a stunning performance as Thomas Dunne in this profound and poignant drama. Set in an Irish county mental home circa the early 1930s, 75-year-old Thomas Dunne's mind lapses in and out of lucidity as he ruminates on a string of bittersweet memories. Between thoughts of his youth to thoughts of his adult life, with his wife and children, to memories of his time as the head of Dublin's Metropolitan Police, Dunne struggles to make sense of his life as the world around him falls apart. Already a story of unquestionable power, The Steward of Christendom is shaped into something unforgettable by Dennehy's extraordinary performance. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- “You’ll find something unexpected, namely the fiercely moving and seriously funny play Williams actually wrote, in a production that’s lightning-lit from within by the tough, compelling and first-rate Amanda Wingfield of Judith Ivey, giving what is surely the performance of her career.” --The New York Times
- “…there’s subtle craft in Keeley’s take on Laura’s fragility, and her performance grows weightier and more complex as the story culminates in a candle-lit kiss with her oblivious gentleman caller.” --Entertainment Weekly
- “The Glass Menagerie... at the Mark Taper Forum in a production directed by Gordon Edelstein, shouldn’t be missed.“ --Los Angeles Times
Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Gordon Edelstein
One of the greatest American plays finds new light in this critically lauded re-imagining of the classic story of a fragile family hanging its hopes on the arrival of a “gentleman caller.”
Two-time Tony Award-winner Judith Ivey features in director Gordon Edelstein’s sparkling new production that makes this Menagerie as fresh and vital and sadly magical as its original 1944 debut.
