- The Glass Menagerie
"Ageing southern belle Amanda Wingfield is desperate to find a suitor for her cripplingly shy daughter Laura, a young girl whose only solace is in her collection of glass animals, each as delicate and fragile as she is. When her brother Tom brings home a colleague to meet Laura, it finally looks like the family have a chance at salvation.
The Glass Menagerie was the play that propelled Tennessee Williams, one of the greatest American playwrights, to the mainstream. Written before his other masterpieces Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and A Streetcar Named Desire, this is a sensitive and heartbreaking portrayal of a post depression family in crisis, and a classic of twentieth century theatre."
