This semi-autobiographical account of Tennessee Williams’ early days in 1930’s St. Louis is a heartbreaking and often funny “memory play” told from the perspective of Tom Wingfield. It is the story of a family desperate to break free of the burdens of both their past and present. Tom’s mother, Amanda, has been abandoned by her husband, and now lives only for her children; his unmarried sister, Laura, is a fragile and painfully shy creature who retreats into a world of glass animals. Tom himself is torn between his poetic inclinations and the responsibility of supporting his mother and sister. Each escapes into their own personal “glass menagerie” as a means of eluding the pain of their own – and each other’s – existence.
