CAN FAMILY TIES BIND TOO TIGHTLY?


“Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.”
-Tom, from THE GLASS MENAGERIE

Acclaimed Chicago director Lisa Portes helms our premiere staging of Tennessee Williams with a fresh investigation of the American Dream through the eyes of those whose connection is most fragile. Tom and his sister Laura live with their devoted mother, Amanda, a former Southern debutante. When Amanda arranges for a "Gentleman Caller" to come for dinner, her all-too-clear intentions force Laura and Tom to confront—in their own ways—the shattering weight of her overbearing expectations.

 

The Glass Menagerie is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
