Details

“I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.”

An evocative and deeply personal play, heartfelt and passionate, from one of the 20th Century’s most celebrated playwrights, Tennessee Williams.

The Glass Menagerie is seen through the memories of Tom Wingfield, a poet and a dreamer. Constrained by his life working in a warehouse and his tenement apartment, he rebels against the strictures of his controlling mother, Amanda. He escapes through the movies, fulfilling his dreams through the Hollywood greats of the 1930s.

Amanda lives by her charm and the steely gentility of her Deep Southern roots, her purpose centred on finding a gentleman caller for her shy and reclusive daughter. But Laura has long since shunned the real world for one of fantasy and escapism – her menagerie of glass animals.

One of the most powerful plays of the 20th century, The Glass Menagerie is a tale of love, loss and the disparate hopes and dreams of a family at odds.

PLEASE NOTE: Friday 25th March 2016 at 7.45pm – The Signed Performance has now changed to a Captioned Performance.
