The Glass Menagerie

omod008.jpg

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Paula Plum
November 29 - December 2
Merrick Theater, Spingold Theater Center

In "The Glass Menagerie," Tennessee Williams' characters drown in denial and illusion as an antidote to the pain of truth. In the character of Amanda Wingfield, Williams draws a portrait of a desperate woman refusing to accept the reality of her daughter's crippling introversion and her son's impotent artistic yearnings. It is a "memory play," in which the characters are haunted by broken dreams yet still cling to the dreams of happiness, success, status and, ultimately, salvation.

This is an opportunity to allow the next generation of theater artists to take hold of a masterpiece of theater, mold it and present it in their own voice.
