South End / BCA Plaza Theaters
3/9/19 - 3/16/19


One of the greatest American plays of the 20th century, Tennessee Williams’ classic The Glass Menagerie explores the bonds of family and exposes the complexity of our memories. Faded southern belle Amanda frets constantly over her two live-in adult children—the painfully shy Laura and her restless poet brother, Tom. After great prodding, Tom brings home a possible suitor for Laura, but an unknown truth causes shockwaves in the family and unraveling the delicate fantasies that keep them going. This intensely personal and brilliantly tender masterpiece by America’s most celebrated playwright poetically captures the allure of illusion, the danger of memory and the timeless fragility of love.

Run time: 2 hours with one intermission.
