The Glass
Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams

Production synopsis Tom escapes a suffocating home life through cigarettes and long visits to the movies while his sister, Laura, withdraws into her records and collection of glass animals. But their mother, Amanda, harbours dreams for them far beyond their shabby apartment. When Tom brings home a potential suitor for Laura, Amanda seizes the opportunity to change their fortunes.

The Glass Menagerie is a poetic and bruising portrayal of a family on the brink of change. This intimate and intense memory play explores the complex web of love, loyalty and trauma that binds families together.

"Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion."
