More Information


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. Their chance meeting becomes one of the sweetest and most heartbreaking stories ever told. Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece is a touching tale of lost dreams, family bonds and survival.
