The Glass Menagerie
About The Glass Menagerie
Join us for this timeless story of family, dreams, and disenchantment. The Glass Menagerie was the play that announced the arrival of one of the great 20th-century American artists, Tennessee Williams, and it still stands as a searing and brilliant exploration of how to translate pain into art.
The themes that run through The Glass Menagerie remain as relevant today as ever. The tension between individual identity and family obligation, caught within the greater forces at work in society. How to make sense of our experiences. How to break free from our past, from the ghosts that haunt us. The play uses lyrical prose, lavish with humor and pathos, to ask its questions. How and why do we live the lives that we do? This production of The Glass Menagerie strips the stage drama to its barest and most essential elements and, through its unforgettable characters, continues to bring clarity and meaning to the world.
