the story

Amanda Wingfield is a Southern belle past her prime, living with two grown children in a small apartment in St. Louis. Amanda dreams of a better life for her shy and crippled daughter Laura, and so she pushes her son, Tom, to find a “gentleman caller” for the girl. However, the arrival of the gentleman caller sends shockwaves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them going.

A beautiful play full of poetry & longing, THE GLASS MENAGERIE makes a triumphant return to Broadway in an exquisite & groundbreaking new production.
