The Glass Menagerie

27th March – 3rd April 1993

One of the characters in the play, Tom Wingfield, says “The play is memory. Being a memory play, it is dimly lighted, it is sentimental, it is not realistic … I am the narrator of the play … The other characters are my mother, Amanda, my sister, Laura, and a gentleman caller who appears in the final scenes”.

This is Tennessee Williams’ first play and the most delicate of his water-colours. The title gives the play its central symbol. Laura is a girl of twenty-three whose lameness has confined her in a brittle world of her own, until she is like one of her glass collection, too fragile to move from the shelf. Her only salvation is the gentleman caller.
