By Tennessee Williams. Directed by Paul Marshall.
Tom brings a work colleague, Jim, to meet Amanda, his mother and former ‘Southern Belle’, and Laura, his insecure and slightly crippled sister who is absorbed by her collection of glass animals. Amanda is desperate to find a husband for Laura – but is Jim the answer to Amanda’s prayers?
It is a sensitive piece of drama – an intimate, absorbing and heartbreaking personal drama which examines how fragile the human heart can be, and how easily it can be broken.
The Glass Menagerie won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play in 1945 when it was premiered on Broadway.
