One of the greatest plays of the American theatre, THE GLASS MENAGERIE tells the story of a St. Louis family struggling to cope with the harsh realities of the Great Depression. Son Tom is torn between his role as the family bread-winner and the desire to lead a life of his own. His sister Laura has retreated into an imaginary world of caring for her collection of glass animals. And his mother Amanda, once a grand Southern socialite, is desperately trying to find a husband (a “gentleman caller,” as she calls him) for her frail daughter. This gentleman caller could mean their final chance for stability, or he could deal a powerful blow to their hopes and dreams.
