Theatre Discipline Lead: Shannon Kearns
From Dramatists Play Service, Inc.: Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura, who has a physical handicap and debilitating shyness. The father has left home; Tom supports his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda, and Laura have each created in order to make life bearable collapse about them.
The Glass Menagerie was written by Tennessee Williams. This play was staged at Collin College in the Black Box Theatre Nov. 29-Dec. 9, 2018. It was directed by Collin professor John Daniel Pszyk.
