More Information:
The Glass Menagerie
Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Aaron Posner
Opening Night: Tuesday, June 21; continues through October 15

Tennessee Williams' memory play about a family lost, The Glass Menagerie is a recollection by Tom Wingfield about his overbearing mother, Amanda, and painfully shy sister, Laura. The Wingfields were long ago deserted by their father, leaving Tom to care for the family and forcing him to abandon his dreams of writing and travel. Laura is unable to work due to her general terror of people, and Amanda decides the cure for their problems is for Laura to marry into money. When Tom is bullied into bringing home a suitor for his sister, the Wingfields find just how fragile family bonds can become.

Aaron Posner will make his APT directorial debut with this play. Featuring Sarah Day as Amanda, Darragh Kennan as Tom, Susan Shunk as Laura and Marcus Truschinski as Jim.




APT's spectacular outdoor amphitheater will play host to five classic works: William Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" and "The Tempest", Noël Coward's comic masterpiece "Blithe Spirit", Richard Brinsley Sheridan's hilarious Restoration comedy "The Critic" and the American classic "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck. The plays in the intimate, indoor Touchstone Theatre are: Tennessee Williams' masterpiece "The Glass Menagerie", "Crime and Punishment," an adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novel written by Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus and "The Cure at Troy: a Version of Sophocles' Philoctetes" by Seamus Heaney.
