Description

The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams’ most deeply personal and haunting play. Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle, holds on tight to her two children. She pushes them to be more successful—in life and love. When her son Tom brings home a gentleman caller, his sister Laura is given hope.
