The Glass Menagerie
About The Glass Menagerie
Lisa Portes brings her bold and sharp vision to the American classic.
Tom Wingfield reflects on his youth in St. Louis, carefully letting us know that his memories may not always be true. Tom and his sister, Laura, live with their mother Amanda, a former debutante. Now in reduced circumstances, Amanda longs to recreate her Southern Belle glory days by seizing on the chance to entertain Tom’s former classmate and Laura’s unrequited crush.
As Tom and Laura attempt to break free—each in their own way—of their mother’s overbearing expectations, the arrival of the “Gentleman Caller” throws their lives into disarray.
Recommended for ages 14 and up.
