Few plays have explored the byways of the human heart as poignantly and poetically as Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie. Amanda is a Southern belle, abandoned wife, and dominating mother, living with two grown children. Amanda dreams of a better life for her painfully shy and crippled daughter, Laura, who evades her mother’s schemes and reality by retreating to a world of make-believe. Tom, her son and sole support for the family, wrestles with his desire for adventure and a life outside the confines of their small apartment in St. Louis. Amanda pushes Tom to find a “gentleman caller” for the Laura, however, his arrival sends shockwaves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them each going.
