THE GLASS MENAGERIE is the play closest to the early life of Tennessee Williams - and the work that made him famous. Williams’ real first name is Thomas, and Tom, a would-be writer, is the narrator we meet as the drama begins.

Tom takes us back to St. Louis, Missouri in the late 1930’s and the apartment of the Wingfields where we meet the 2 women in his life - women he loves and wants to protect at the same time as he wants to escape their demands and live his own life.

Amanda, his mother, fights to keep her family afloat, seeking solace in dreams of a beautiful past. She is especially worried about her reclusive daughter, Laura, who is even more tempted to escape into a world of illusion - her glass menagerie, beautiful but fragile.

Can any of them survive harsh reality?
