Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle of middle age, shares a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son Tom, in his early twenties, and his slightly older sister, Laura. Although she is a survivor and a pragmatist, Amanda yearns for the comforts and admiration she remembers from her days as a fêted debutante. She worries especially about the future of her daughter Laura, a young woman with a limp (an aftereffect of a bout of polio) and a tremulous insecurity about the outside world. Amanda is obsessed with finding a suitor (or, as she puts it, a "gentleman caller") for Laura, whose crippling shyness has led her to drop out of both high school and a subsequent secretarial course, and who spends much of her time polishing and arranging her collection of little glass animals. Pressured by his mother to help find a caller for Laura, Tom invites an acquaintance from work named Jim home for dinner.
"The Glass Menagerie" is directed by Nathan R. Miles, and will be our entry in the 2017 AACTFest competition.
"The Glass Menagerie" stars Veronikka Sylvas as Amanda Wingfield, Tyler Bunch as Tom Wingfield, Sarah Bunch as Laura Wingfield, and Jason Marshall as Jim O'Connor.
Show dates are February 16-18 (8 PM) and February 19 (2 PM). Tickets are $10 and available at the door or online (click here).
