About

The Glass Menagerie

 

by Tennessee Williams
directed by Preston Lane

September 5 – 26, 2010

Handle with care.
Memories as fragile as glass are tossed into the air in Tennessee Williams’ first great masterpiece. Dreams meet reality and love becomes desperate in a shimmering drama of a family on the edge. Tom struggles in a modern day world while his mother holds tight to a fantasy of Southern gentility and his sister hides amongst the glistening crystalline creatures she collects. With an edge as sharp as broken glass, the play cuts deep into the longing of human hearts.

An amazing fusion of theater, film and video: Triad Stage's THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Indyweek.com
September 26, 2010

Here’s a question for long-time theater buffs: What if Tom Wingfield, Tennessee Williams’ pseudonymous narrator inTHE GLASS MENAGERIE, had gone on to be a filmmaker instead of a writer—one whose ghostly, black and white footage from his memories keeps shifting between a profound sense of intimacy and a much cooler reserve?

Triad Stage kicked off its 10th season on September 10 with an unforgettable opening night performance of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie.
