The Glass Menagerie

March 8 - April 13

Written by: Tennessee Williams
Directed by: Jackie L. Kemp

Distinctly powerful, this iconic story is a memory play as told to us by Tom Wingfield, a merchant marine looking back on the Depression years he spent working in a factory and sharing a St. Louis tenement with his overbearing Southern genteel mother, Amanda, and his sister, Laura. While Amanda strives to give her children a life beyond the inhabit, she is herself trapped by the memory of her romanticized youth. Tom, finds his own escape in drinking and going to the movies, while Laura pours her energy into caring for her delicate glass figurines.

What People Are Saying

The greatest compliment that I can pay to this tremendously powerful production [...] is that for almost two and a half hours I did not once squirm in my seat, check the time, or maybe even take a breath. This Cat on a Hot Tin Roof redefines riveting theater.

True art is to address challenging topics and weave in a thick thread of humor; Folsom's vision made this art possible. Don't miss out on the realization of this vision of a Checkhov classic.

In the relatively recent history of The Classics Theatre Project, I have stood in awe of their brilliance for staging from the theatre canon, and making them vibrant, accessible and relevant. Their treatments are intelligent and entertaining, with a keen and kinetic spin.
