Tom Wingfield sits writing in a hotel room, trying to forge his past into art. Soon Tom’s space is overtaken by the cramped apartment he once shared with his mother Amanda, his beloved sister Laura and unrequited dreams as fragile as Laura’s collection of tiny glass animals. There, Tom relives the Gentleman Caller’s visit – the night that changed his family forever.
The original production of “The Glass Menagerie” opened on Mar 31, 1945 at the Playhouse under the auspices of Eddie Dowling & Louis J Singer. Eddie Dowling & Margo Jones directed a cast which included Eddie Dowling, Julie Haydon, Anthony Ross & Laurette Taylor.
