The Glass Menagerie

Tennessee Williams invented a new kind of theatre with The Glass Menagerie. It introduced the first in a line of legendary Williams women _ towering dreamers fighting for their lives _ and its formal inventiveness paved the way for the great American dream plays like Death of a Salesman and Angels in America. It is also a scathing self-portrait of the young Tennessee: homosexual, poet, liar, truth-teller.

Amanda Wingfield is a single mother. Her son Tom works in a warehouse, her daughter Laura is studying to become a secretary. The three of them live in a small apartment pent up with fantasies and urges and rage and wounded tenderness. It is not a magnificent existence, but each of them has one true idea for a better life. Enter the Gentleman Caller.

Eamon Flack directs Luke Mullins (Angels in America) and the great Pamela Rabe.
