The Glass Menagerie

Tennessee Williams’ poignant drama, "The Glass Menagerie", will show at the Willits Community Theatre April 12 through 28. The award-winning play delves into the fragile dynamics of a mother and her two children, haunted by the memory of an absent father and their struggle to escape their suffocating circumstances.

Central to the drama is Amanda Wingfield, a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura, who has a physical handicap and debilitating shyness. The father has left home, while young Tom supports his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable.  When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda, and Laura have each created in order to make life bearable collapse about them.

“The Glass Menagerie” is a “memory play” told by the character of Tom as events that happened in his youth. Director Michael Ducharme has chosen to add a 5 th narrator character, an older Tom Wingfield, to make it clear that these are memories. Starring in the production are Kate Magruder, Sonja Burgal, Joshua Sternberg, Schuyler Marcier and Aris Vellis.
