A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the greatest American plays of the 20th century. Tennessee Williams achieved his first major success with this autobiographical “memory play,” which looks at the Wingfield family, frustrated writer Tom, his nagging mother, Amanda – who is often lost in memories of her Southern-belle past – and his painfully shy sister, Laura. A visit from a “gentleman caller” sets off emotions and revelations that change their lives forever. This iconic, emotional and enduring family drama made Williams famous and has become a world classic.
“The play is about the remembrance of things past, reminding us that ‘Time is the longest distance between two places.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
