by Tennessee Williams
Director: David Hall
Long ago , Mr. Wingfield - a telephone man who "fell in love with long distance" - abandoned his family. They struggle on their own in a dingy apartment in St. Louis. Wingfield's forces Tom, his son, to care for his mother, Amanda, and sister, Laura. The incessant badgering from Amanda forces Tom to the comfort of alcohol and movies. Amanda convinces him to find his sister a "gentleman caller." With Laura married, Tom would be free to find a life outside the despair and mundane - and his mother's dominance. Laura, delicate and painfully shy due to a slight handicap, lives in a fantasy created by her beautiful, fragile glass figurine collection. Tom brings home Jim, a colleague, who seems to release Laura for a moment from the security of her glass menagerie. The evening ends almost euphoric, but a devastating truth brings reality crashing down, causing Tom to make a painful and regrettable decision.
