The Glass Menagerie is one of Tennessee Williams’ most well-known plays. It is set within the memory of Tom Wingfield, an aspiring writer. He has taken the place of his father who abandoned the family. He carries the weight of responsibility for his mother, Amanda, a faded debutante from a time gone with the wind, and Laura, his sister who suffers from debilitating shyness. Each member of the family has their own unique coping mechanisms to make it through their day to day lives. Tensions rise as Tom’s restlessness grows and Amanda’s anxiety around their future escalates.
**This play is not suitable for children under 12. This play contains mild language, adult themes and smoking.**

Please note our new times!
We have heard from our patrons that 8:00 pm is too late to begin our shows, as they let out too late. Therefore we are starting this production at 7:00 pm, not 8:00pm! Sunday matinees will still begin at 2:00 pm. Please plan accordingly. In addition, we will not have any Friday performances. We look forward to bringing you this great performance!
