What is The Glass Menagerie about?
Amanda Wingfield is left devastated by her husband’s abandonment, but her focus remains steadfast on securing a good life for her and her two children, Tom and Laura. However, her ideals clash with the dreams and ambitions of her children.
Amanda’s determination leaves Tom feeling trapped by his life in St Louis, whilst Laura is crippled under the pressure of securing their future. Looking past the fragile self-esteem of her daughter and the strain it is having on their relationship, Amanda continues her search for a suitor for Laura. The line between dignity and desperation becomes increasingly blurred. The talented cast and creative team come together to bring the work of Tennessee Williams to life!
